Just select some text (or just have the cursor on the word you want to search for) and press Ctrl+F3. Ctrl+Shift+F3 will do a reverse search.

Note that a Ctrl+F3 search uses the following options:

  • Is case sensitive
  • Searches hidden text
  • Allows for partial matching
  • Does not use regular expressions

Happy Programming! =)
