when I say "find next" I mean "find next"

when searching in output window,
then hitting F3 IDEA searches from beginning
when "entire scope" is checked.

but even if "entire scope" is checked,
I think F3 (find next) should search from cursor on.

The "entire scope" behaviour confused me,
and got on my nerves tremendously !!!

well it seems my complaint was not quite right and
f3 behaves correctly.

the real problem is, that I don't need the
"entire scope" option at all in the output window
when searching.
Search from cursor, and backwards / forwards
is enough and less confusing.

In my opinion "entire scope" is only useful
when replacing.

so, topic should read like this:

when I say find, I never want
to search entire scope, I always want to search
from cursor.

i posted a feature request for this, see

No, wrong, I want to search the entire scope. Sometimes I'm editing the end of a (long) file, and the stupid idea of finding something just hits my mind. Now, I want to find the ocurrences of these things from the beginning of the file.

"Search the entire scope" is a useful thing, and doesn't hurt anyone who never used it. If anything, you could ask to rename it to "search from the beginning", but not to remove it.

IDEA tells you "press F3 to search from the top"
in that case - which is much easier then to
check "entire scope" in the search dialog.
