Selecting text for find in one document, then using find next in another document

Hi Rickard.

If I select some text in document A, then hit Ctrl+F, the text is copied to the find box, but then I immediately switch to document B and hit "find next", the program will repeat the last find from document B and not the text which is in the find box, actually it will replace the find text with the previous search from document B and look for that.

It's a bit confusing, perhaps the find box should always search for the text in the find box - this is what I was trying to do, select search text in one document and execute it in another,

...or the find box should update to show the active search text if it is being tracked per document.

What are your thoughts?

Edit: attached my search options
