pbowers 2 Posted October 9, 2015 Share Posted October 9, 2015 When I press ctrl-f to search for something it pulls up a little bar at the bottom allowing me to enter the search text and click on the next/prev occurrence. When I have found the location I want to work in, I naturally hit ESC (or click on the X in the search-mode bar) to exit from that search-mode, assuming that my cursor will now be exactly at the location of the chosen occurrence of my search word. Search-mode is exited, but my cursor is taken to the top (bottom?) of the note instead of staying where I want to be to edit/read in that location. To see the nearly universally standard behavior in windows, try out adob reader or m$ word or open office writer - in all cases you ctrl-f, type your search, press enter to move through occurrences (next, next, next), and then ESC or click on X to exit the search mode leaving your cursor location at the final chosen occurrence. EN acts differently. (Yes, I know that I can click in the text while search-mode is still active and that will exit search-mode and put my cursor wherever I clicked. That is one way to exit search-mode. But this other way is also legitimate (otherwise why would you respond to the ESC or place an X to exit there) and the resulting behavior doesn't make a whole lot of sense - who wants to go to the beginning/end of the note when they exit search-mode?
