#332 Find previous match (Shift-F3) not working

I see "Find previous Shift-F3" in the menu always disabled.

Also, the direction of F3 depends on the settings that I last time used in the Find box (which may not already be visible if it was many hours ago): depending on what I did many hours or days ago, F3 searches forward or backward (and Shift-F3 always does nothing). When there are no more occurrences, F3 silently does nothing. Usual behavior of F3 is to find next searching downward, and when there is no next, search from the top of the document.

I suggest that F3 should always search downward and Shift-F3 always upward.

    The described error has been added to the official bug list.

    Thank you for your report.

    Simple reason: We do not have an action assigned to ID_EDIT_FIND_PREVIOUS.

    F3 direction is now always downwards, but the rest is still an issue on version 2.01 Stable (Disabled shift+F3, no going back from top). This wasn't a problem on TexnicCenter 1!

    A further issue that is closely related to this bug is that TC is sorely missing a "search wraparound" feature. It can be frustrating for the user to try to understand whether a keyword should be searched up or down, especially in long documents. Most modern software implements this function.
