I find that incremental search is one of the more useful features in any text
editor. I have a few observations that should improve its functionality
Jump to next found token (Enter) is a nice touch. Basically, I can press Enter
at any time and it will skip to the next result. However, if I press Esc, the
editor skips back to the first result, which is unexpected. I would like the
cursor to stay on the current line (the Nth match).
Furthermore, on Esc the search string should be added to the search history,
so that hitting F3 should continue the search. This is the behaviour I'm expecting,
and it's frustrating when I hit F3 and nothing happens (or worse, the last
non-incremental search is fired again).
"Highlight all" is another nice touch. It would be more useful if you could
toggle it via a keyboard shortcut (ditto for Match Case). Or at least make its
state persistent and/or configurable.
Thanks for a great text editor,
