How do I search backwards in the C++Builder/Delphi editor?

By: Vincent Drake

Abstract: Simple question, quick answer


Question:

The standard editor key mapping sets F3 as the "Find Next", but there doesn't appear to be a hot-key for "Find Previous". How can I search backward?

 
Answer:

There is no hot key for "Find Previous". Most of the time, people only need to "Find Previous" when they've gone too far in their "Find Next". In this situation, you can use Ctrl-Z. Technically, this will "Select previously selected text", but will effectively "Find Previous" on items already "Found".
