Summary0016578: Easy « Continue Search » after editing text
DescriptionSearch now brings the viewport to the found string. Great.
BUT the search window is on top of the screen and cannot be moved. User has to close the search window so as to see and edit the text.
- Please enable to move the search window outside or on the side of the text view.
- Or enable to close the search parameters pane and just display the "Search", "Substitutes", "Change All" etc buttons bottom bar while enabling to edit the text. That would be great !

In the meanwhile as for now and as long as we have to close the search dialog to edit the text : when user closes the search dialog to view and edits the text, there is no way to relaunch the search ! User has to open the search dialog and to specify all parameters over again from start on.

To avoid this annoyance : Please enable a keyboard shortcut or a UI button for that request : "Search Again".

OR : search parameters should not default to "none" (empty dialog) but should default to the previous search, so as to avoid to specify all search parameters again.
TagsNo tags attached.

The search string input defaults to the selected text when the search is called. So it makes one option less to input when the searched word is in current edit area (and when it is not removed during the edit process).
