I'd love to see a way to search forward in the currently edited file for the contents of the current selection. I've used such a feature in several IDEs. MS Visual Studio maps it (in one of their default mappings) to ctrl-F3, as does Visual Cafe (Webgain). Is there an easy way to implement this? Maybe the current key bindings allow this to be done, but I do not see it in teh documentation. I do not (and will not) use and learn the EMACS key bindings and paradigm (I'm an old stubborn horse). But I'd happily accept a feature from EMACS that would do what I am asking. Currently, I work around this by memorizing a sequence of keystrokes that copies the current selection, selects everything to the right of the cursor position in the Find manager, pastes the search string, and then does the Find or Reverse find. But I'd rather do it with ctrl-F3. Call me an old dog. If this is possible, I'd further like to see ctrl-shift-F3 initiate a search backward in the file for the currently selected text. Thanks
