Repro steps:

1. Open NetBeans
2. Open "Find in Projects" dialog (shortcut "Cmd-Shift-F" or from menu "Edit" > "Find in Projects...")
3. Enter some text in "Containing Text:" field (the keyboard focus should be there already)
4. Press "Enter" key on the keyboard

Actual results:

You are still in the "Find in Projects" dialog, nothing changes.

Expected results:

The dialog closed, search started and you can see the results of it.

Still doesn't work. NetBeans 8.1.

I think this is more of an "enhancement" than a "defect," however, it would be very nice (and easy?) to resolve.  The "Containing Text" field just needs a keystroke listener so that the ENTER key fires the same action as the "Find" button.  (I think that's how... It's been a while since I've programmed Swing.)

I love the "Find in Projects" dialog.  I use it at least a dozen times every day.  Usually, I only need to change the search text.  The rest of its options are usually just right.  It would make life just a little more pleasant if I didn't have to take my hands off the keyboard to hunt that "Find" button with my mouse each time.  :-)
