    Hi,

    When using incremental search and the enter key to search for the next occurrence, I can't easily position the cursor in the text I find.
    If I press esc it scrolls up all the way to the first occurrence and if I click with the mouse it selects all the text between the first occurrence and where I click. Is this a problem others have too? Am I missing an easier way to do this? Thank you.

      Did you check if anyone else reported this problem before?

        I did check the bug reports and I couldn't find a bug filled for this. Now I found one other post about this problem, but, unfortunatly there was no answer. Do you (fool4uanyway or anyone else) have the solution? Thank you.

    Nope. For me, pressing Esc exits incremental search mode and positions the cursor at the current match.
