I often use the search as follows:
- enter search text.
- press Return (first occurrence is highlighted)
- press ESC (Find windows is closed)
- press F3 (next occurrence is highlighted)
In the mac version, F3 shows "Search string '...' not found. Retry from the beginning?", but it seems the last occurrence is highlighted while the message box is show.
If I keep the Find window open, F3 finds each occurrence.
