Could this be implemented in the next feature VoodooPad, thx? When you do a global search, you land at the first entry in the file which is great. However, there could be more entries in the same file of the same string and you end up opening up the document and do another per document search to find the other entries. Could we have a file menu or button in the global search that is activated if there are more than one hit and you could go to the next one? Even better a back and forth, two-pair button system going to next and previous to look at the content. Thx.

    Well, I found a workaround, you select the first hit and then you could continue with command-G. So actually a really small fix would be to allow command-G with the first hit without the need to select the found string.

    Hehe, this is actually a bug, you have to de-select any found string to continue with command-G, it should work independently. So let's classify this as a bug.
