Pressing Ctrl+F brings up the UI to start a Quick Find search in the current document.

Quick Find prepopulates the Find What text with whatever text is selected in the editor or the word that the cursor is currently on.

Additionally, this Find And Replace window is actually a tool window, so you can dock it somewhere and continue to type in the editor while the window is open.

Happy Programming! =)
