Searching the Current File

The Search command (Alt+F) searches the current file for a search pattern. The search can be forward or backwards. In addition, the search can be batch style, where the search output results are placed in a Search Results window. See also “Search”.

The Search Forward (F4) command repeats the last search, allowing you to advance through the file, finding each occurrence of a pattern.

The Search Forward for Selection command searches for the next occurrence of the first word in the current selection.

The Incremental Search command (F12) finds matches as you type the characters. See also “Incremental Search”.
