Find auto-search screws up trying to find next variable

If I'm looking for a word that's before the line and may be after the line my cursor's on, the finder will search as I type, pushing me to whatever it finds which could be before or after my line even if I'm not searching for those partial words (which are for each new letter I type); I don't want it searching for partial words when I'm not done typing the word. Is there any way to disable this? I don't want to have to open up Notepad, type in my word there, then copy and paste it to PHPStorm Find every time (or type it in the PHPStorm editor file and have it try to validate the code while I'm just trying to type my search word).

Hi David,

Unfortunately, it's not possible at the moment.

However, there's a feature request for a checkbox turning "Search on typing" off, please vote to bring it up in the queue:
