Do a quick search with Source Edit

You can do a quick search in a file without bringing up the Find dialog box. This is an excellent feature to for example find a procedure or function in a large file.

Open the Tools|Options dialog box and switch to the Keyboard tab. In the Command list locate the FindNextWord and the FindPrevWord commands. If you don't already have any shortcuts defined for these commands assign one now (default is Ctrl+F3 and Ctrl+Shift+F3).

You can now use these shortcuts to find the next or previous occurrence of the selected text or the word the text caret is currently placed in.
