Quick Find - Does it exist?

I am almost sure that I once read about a quick find feature in IDEA, which allows searching for text without having to open the search dialog. In Mozilla this works simply by typing '/' and then typing the word that I am looking for.

I looked through the docs and the keymaps but I am not able to find this for IDEA (anymore).

Does it exist? And how can I use it?

Alt-F3. You move between matches with up and down arrow.

Yeah, that's it. And now I even found it in the documentation. Thanks.

You make me think of a nice feature that can be added. I remember in the old
day ;) when I was using NetBean (don't laugh please), there was this very
nice search feature: You put the cursor over a word, hit the shortcut (I
think it was Ctrl-/ but I'm not sure), and it automatically go to the next
next appearance of the word. Another shortcut and it go to the previous one.

It's a very fast search. It is very useful when you want to go to the
previous usage of a variable.

Should I add that as a request feature?
