Every decent text editor (and most of the ancient ones) today have a "Search
Next" feature. Our Basic IDE hasn't.

This means that for repeated text searches in the Basic IDE, you always need to
open the Basic "Search and Replace" dialog. Sadly, it always (according to
Murphy) covers the part of the Window where the found text is located.
Additionally, it is not really possible to use it with keyboard, since you
cannot close and re-open it without losing the search text. This means that
repeated text searches in the IDE are really a pain in the neck.

The Basic IDE should have the simple and "Search next" functionality as all
other applications, pre-configured with a keyboard shortcut.
