Description codeninja 2008-07-22 15:38:24 UTC
Find in projects (Ctrl-Shift-F) should use the selected text in the editor by default.  I currently have to select the
text, copy it, then choose the search in files feature and paste the text I copied into the search box.  This requires a
lot more keystrokes than just selecting the text, pressing ctrl-shift-f and pressing Enter.

Agreed. Marian, was not this working already at some point? Maybe not. How should I integrate the editor selection with
the project search? Thanks
