Better search

I’d like to see Find work like it does in Word, with all the results in a pane on the left. The current method is pretty archaic and not very helpful.

In the Mac version we get a Collection created that includes all the documents matching the search terms. Does that not happen in the Windows version? (I don’t have any Windows machines available to check.)

The project search, which you normally invoke via the toolbar search textbox*, creates a list of documents which conform to the search criteria, and also highlights the found terms in the body of each document. The other form of search/find is your standard search and/or replace floating window.

  • The Edit->Find->Project Search menu pops the cursor up into the toolbar search field, so either way, you end up in the toolbar.
