Currently, Find and Replace starts its search from the current cursor position.

Please add a check box option to start the search from the beginning.

This is because:
+ sometimes it's not obvious when I get to the place I
  started on the next lap.
+ I often want to look from the start as typically where
  ideas are introduced in documents.

Also on Replace All, it should go only from current cursor position to
end, and then ask if it should start from begining, like when
replaicing one by one.

Now it replaces all occurences in the document when I only want it
from current cursor to end.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
