NOBUG? Setting "Always use selection as ..." not respected

Post by AndreasW » 28 Jun 2017 08:26

I have "Always use selection as text to find" turned OFF. Nevertheless, when selecting some text and pressing Ctrl+F, the selected text is suggested as text to find.

Actually, that option tells the editor if you want a multi-line selection to be used as a find text, or not. Selections spanning a single line is always used as a search text.

I know it's not entirely clear (perhaps not even remotely :-D ).

I don't want that. What I want is that when pressing Ctrl+F, the previous (last) search text will be suggested as text to find, regardless of whether something is selected or not.

So I guess it's a feature request then, not a bug report. And I'd suggest to change the text of the existing option so that it describes its real effect.

Hmm, in v12.20 beta 1, the misleading text "Always use selection as text to find" has not been changed, plus it is still not possible to configure RJ TextEd such that the previous (last) search text will be suggested as text to find when you press Ctrl+F while some text is selected.

Thank you very much for the new search options in v12.21!
