- Jan 24, 2006CTRL+F3 is your friend. It will automatically select and search for the
the "word" currently under the cursor. A "word" is defined by the
word-delimiter characters specified in the currently active .stx file.
This bypasses the Find window.
CTRL+SHIFT+F3 will do the same but search backwards.
You only need to use the CTRL key once (to select and start the search),
after that just F3 or SHIFT+F3 will continue the search as you are
