Find

jon_bondy
Just grabbed the latest release

Used to be that I could do <ctrl>F in the Editor, type in a word, press
<enter> and find the first instance of that word.  That still works. 
Used to be that I could then press <enter> again to find the second
instance of the word.  This no longer works.  It seems that I now need
to drop the keyboard, go find the mouse, go find a Next button, and
click it.  Then go find the keyboard again.

I find this to be much less efficient than in the past.

Re: Find

That does work.

I wonder why <enter> was removed.  It now does nothing at all, and in the past it did something useful.

Oh, well.

Re: Find

You can work with <ctl>g also in the editor and find the next one. That would not work with <enter>.

Re: Find

Ah.  I always found having to enter and exit Find to be annoying.  I guess I was missing the <ctl>g trick.

Thanks!

Re: Find

Perhaps if the button had read "Next - <ctl>g" this entire thread would have been unnecessary.

Here too, on Windows 10 if that matters.

I can't immediately find any difference in the behavior of Find between 2019.05 and 2021.01.  [Enter] finds the next instance if and only if Find's text entry box has the focus.

Re: Find

jon_bondy

I put my cursor in the text box of the Find and hit <enter> and nothing changes in the editor.

Puzzling.

Wow.  Just Wow.  The <enter> key does not work, but the <enter> key on the keypad does work.

<ctrl>-g it is, I guess

Perhaps if F3 had been used for repeated Finds, nobody would have even
wondered about it.

I would never have considered using anything other than File->Reload (or
Ctrl-R) for reload, let alone F3.

Re: Find

I agree!

I have been using F3 for find-again for decades.  I find the "modern"
editors to be infuriating.  Why can't we keep things that work?!?

Re: Find

lar3ry
To be fair, I just looked at the Pluma editor on my Linux box, and "Find
Next" is Ctrl-G, which may just be a Unix/Linux standard. I am just in the
process of switching over from the Evil Empire to Ubuntu, so I am not
intimately familiar with Linux conventions yet.

Perhaps a configuration choice would help.
A friendlier method might be for OpenSCAD to detect the OS it is running on,
and use the appropriate conventions.

Re: Find

caggius

Using a Mac also changes the conventions

F3 shows all windows

Chrome and Safari both use Cmd-G for next after Cmd-F for find

But my preferred code editor BBEDIT uses Ctrl-G for next (not Cmd) don’t follow this with enter as it will delete the highlighted found word!

cheers
Bob
