Search enhancement to allow moving cursor to searched item

David May 17, 2018 03:58PM PDT

Please add a feature to the Search function to allow a return of found results and ability to step through each of the results and have the cursor's focus actually go to the found search term.

se case is to search on a term that may have many hits and be located on the same outline page. e.g. If search is for "Project X" and there are 67 hits, then allow user to step thru each of the 67 hits and have the cursor focus highlight the actual words "Project X" and maintain the location of the user within the search results. e.g. if I the user is on the 23rd instance of the search results, allow the user to see where it occurs and then allow the user to return to the results and then select the 24th instance, and so on.

Circus Ponies Notebook had this feature and allowed me to put hundreds of pages into my notebook and quickly find a searched term.
