My assumption is that there is a relationship between what happens in the VS IDE code editor and what are the values shown in the Find and Replace dialog.For example:a) if the caret is on a word in the code editor and you click Ctrl+F3 the Find and Replace dialog appears. The "Find what" edit box of the Find and Replace dialog will shown that word.b) if you select a word in the code editor and click Ctrl+F3 the Find and Replace dialog appears. The "Find what" edit box of the Find and Replace dialog will shown that word.c) if you select multiple lines in the code editor and click Ctrl+F3 then the "Look in" combo box will be set to "Selection" value.Now, if you select multiple lines in the code editor and click Ctrl+F3 then the "Look in" combo box has been automatically set to "Selection". I believe VS assumes you want to find a word inside the selection.My problem arises when I select, by mistake, multiple lines, click on Ctrl+F3, insert a word to look for into the "Find what" edit box of the Find and Replace dialog, click the Enter/Return key, and see that the word isn't inside the multiple lines selected. If at this point I click three times the ESC key to remove, in order, the VS message box, the Find and Replace dialog, and at the end the selection inside my code editor, and click the F3 key to continue the search in my document (because I know there are instances of the word I'm looking for inside my document), VS didn't perform well the search, saying that there are no more instances of that word.- VS versions affected.VS2008/VS2010 professionals edition.VS2012 express edition. VS2012 doesn't even perform the 7) point of my Steps to reproduce, but will show directly the message box from the 8) point.Let me know if it is unclear.Thank you
