Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-07-04 16:13:41 UTC
I think the use of the words 'Find Next' would be better to be used than simply 'Find' in the 'Find & Replace' dialog. I think that its important to use 'Find Next' as you are finding the next occurrence of the search term. Most other applications use 'Find Next' over 'Find' as some also have 'Find Previous' buttons.
