#284 Wrap search and find again - continue by F3 key


Whenever I see a "Wrap search and find again" dialog I want to press F3 to continue searching from the beginning.
In other words, I would like F3 (or which key is bent to "find next") to work as "continue" in this dialog.

By now it's very uncomfortable to use mouse to click on the "Find" button, or move my hand across entire keyboard to press "tab" then "enter".

(I'm using the latest Geany compiled from SVN. Debian testing.)

    You can use Alt+(the underlined letter on the Find button). For English locales, it's Alt+F.

    Alternatively, disable the wrap dialog with the "General: Miscellaneous: Search: Always wrap search and hide the find dialog" pref.

    Thank you for the hints, but disabling the dialog isn't any good, and unfortunately accelerator keys are quite awkward. F3 for continue searching would be the most handy solution. Please. =)
