|Re: [eclipse-dev] Improving Find/Replace|
hi,This is the preferred behavior of any text editor - to search forward (by default) from the current cursor position. If you want to search with wrap on, you can press Ctrl+F and in the dialog that comes up, you can click the appropriate check box and this will be remembered for the future.

Hi, I'm a relatively new user of Eclipse IDE and I already like it a lot. But was just wondering, wouldn't it be better if we could somewhere have an option of searching 'everywhere' in a given file? I mean, we first click 'Find'(Ctrl. + F), then by default it searches forward, and then if it the word/ search item is not found in this direction, it displays a message with a sound "String not found". Then I come to know that the string must be in the backward direction so I click backwards and then find it again. Shouldn't it start from the top when it reaches the end of file, until it reaches the starting point for search? (As it is done in Visual Studio 2003/2005) . I know that there is a much more comprehensive search in the Search Menu, (Ctrl.+ H), but that takes more time and instead of searching the next occurrence, it tries to search all of them which might not be needed many times. I'm extremely sorry if this functionality is already there. In my search on Eclipse discussions, and on the internet I couldn't find a way to do this. I hope I'm clear in my description. The whole philosophy is, when I'm asking the editor to search for a particular word, I probably don't know where it is: forward or backward.
