Yes, this is probably our most requested feature now.

The menu item Edit / Search and Replace / Search in Files or the key 
binding listed there should do this w/ the "in files" tool and there are 
search for selection items in the same sub-menu that should do it w/ the 
Search tool.    The "mini-search" sub-menu in the Edit menu has similar 
bindings for the mini-search tool.
