Shortcut for 'Find'. Interdev 6

Shortcut for 'Find'. Interdev 6


Does anyone know of a keyboard shortcut to put the cursor into the 'find' box on the toolbar.

I know Ctrl-f opens the find window but most of the time im searching the current file so i dont need any of the other options that are in the find window.


RE: Shortcut for 'Find'. Interdev 6

You mean external to the moving the mouse and deliberately clicking in the box?  No, do not believe there is some sort of shortcut for that.  Your best alternative is what you have already pointed out, the Ctrl-F.

If you don't have a sense of humor, you probably don't have any sense at all.

If the expanding of the "Find" section (when you hit Ctrl-F) annoys you, perhaps if you moved the Find section to a more "out of the way" area it would seem less invasive.

But, as Chopstik points out, there is no shortcut to simply clicking the mouse in the toolbar find-box.
