You can put Wing into emacs mode by setting the following preference:


After restarting Wing, use C-s forward search and C-r reverse search.
Works like in emasc.

If you want C-f instead of C-s, modify keymap.emacs in the Wing
installation directory and restart Wing:

'Ctrl-F': 'search-forward'

(instead of the standard Ctrl-F -> forward-char emacs mapping)

In the future, all search will be more like the emacs mode, with embedded
search interface instead of a seperate dialog (most things will be
organized into a single window, with optional ability to zoom panels out
into seperate windows).

Hope that helps.
