Feature request: automatically select find text in editor

Hi,

I've been using Selena for a bit, and I found it quite annoying that IDEA doesn't automatically highlight a previously searched text when you do CTRL-F in the editor.
The cursor is just positioned at the end of the previously searched text in the latest build. Not sure if anyone else has asked for this (I apologized in advance if this has already been called out). Any chance that this will change in the release?

Thanks.

Press Ctrl+F twice, it'll show up a list of most recent searches you
can choose from.

Amazing! ... I didn't even know that existed...

Well, in this case, it's new.

On the other hand, IDEA documentation isn't something with which our cups overflow...

That would be a good one to create a "Tip of the Day" for (along with some of the other new find bar functionality).
