There are a plethora of shortcuts for Notepad++'s various search implementations already, but I would like to suggest yet another - forward and backward search results for incremental search term, i.e. for after the search box has been closed. This could be implemented either:

  • By using the incremental search term as the current "Find next" term, so that relavent shortcuts will then jump to that result
  • By an additional set of dedicated shortcut keys

    Can I add to this and point out gedit's magically simple incremental search. No hard to reach ctrl-f3, no shift-enter to reverse search. Simply ctrl-f, type stuff, then press up and down. All editors should have this.
