Tips on using the Keyboard

 

The following keys can be used to initiate a search:

 

Normal Find

/ and Ctrl+F.

 

Find Next

F3, A, Ctrl+L, Ctrl+N

You can also use the SPACE key if Use SPACE as Find Next is enabled in the Keyboard tab of Preferences.

 

Ctrl+F3 can be used to search for the next occurrence of any highlighted text.

Alt+A (and Alt+F3) will continue searching the "next file" if no further matches are found in the file being viewed.

 

Find Previous

To search backwards, use any of the Find Next keys with the SHIFT key pressed.

 

Backwards Search

Using ? will always initiate a backwards search. That is, a normal search with the Direction option set to Back.

 

Match Case toggle

Using \ will initiate a search with the default "Match Case" option toggled.

 

That is, if you perform a normal search (eg, using /) with the Match Case option disabled, pressing  "\" will initiate a search with the Match Case option disabled. If you perform a normal search with the Match Case option enabled, using "\" will disable the Match Case option.

 

You can disable this behavior by enabling Disable "Match Case Toggling" (using the \ key).
