Using the Find Text dialog
The Find Text dialog is provided for quick and flexible searching for specified text within the Script Editor working area.
To open this dialog, use the Ctrl+F shortcut or press the corresponding Find Text button on the toolbar. This item is also available in the context menu of the Script Editor area.
Text to find
Enter a search string in this box. The Arrow-Down button which can be found next to the input box allows you to select any of the previously entered search strings.
This option can be used to differentiate uppercase characters from lowercase ones during the search process.
Whole words only
Use this option to search for words only (with this option off, the search string might be found within longer words.)
Recognizes regular expressions in the search string.
Searches from the current position to the end of the Script Editor area.
Searches from the current position to the beginning of the Script Editor area.
Searches within the entire Script Editor working area, in the direction specified by the Direction setting.
Searches only within the currently selected text, in the direction specified by the Direction setting. You can use the mouse or block commands to select a block of text.
The search starts at the cursor's current position, and then proceeds either forward to the end of the scope, or backward to the beginning of the scope depending on the Direction setting.
The search covers either the entire block of selected text or the entire script (no matter where the cursor is in the Editor area) depending upon the Scope options.
Mark search result with stack marker
The option toggles marking search results. If this option is selected, stack markers are set at all search positions - this makes it possible to jump from one marker (search result) to another within the text.
Click the Show All button to highlight every occurrence of the search string.
