Please add search selection checkbox to search bar
There is a plan to make better search UI in netbeans 8.0. The most important is include selection search button in this UI.
I'm not sure, if I correctly understand this bug.
Do you mean, if one has marked some text in the editor and wants to search for that without using Crtl+F ?
By pure chance I thought about this use case yesterday and another possible solution came to my mind:
- mark text
- click on the search field combo-box arrow
- fill the top most combo-box entry with the marked text, but leave the current pattern selected
-> User can select the upper entry for next search
