The Find and Replace windows should have an option to automatically wrap around file, instead of being forced to use the Search Up checkbox.  In PS ISE v3 I often search for text and get the "Cannot Find X" message because I forgot to check/uncheck the Search Up checkbox.  Sometimes I remember to do this, and sometimes I go on thinking that the text doesn't exist in my document anymore, even though it does.

I sadly agree with wtmh144
I've been a PowerGUI user since the very beginning. I just realized today that ISE supports collapsing regions (but only if #region & #endregion are in all lower case numbers!), and it's mystifying that it hasn't moved beyond Notepad when it comes to searching.

This and the fact that there's no saved sessions/tabs is why I can't use the ISE and keep falling back to VS and PowerGUI.

Just tiny TINY little UI irritations that get the better of me. It would be a disgustingly easy and fast fix. But here we are many years later and they still haven't bothered to tie the bow on this.

I know I can make those things happen myself, but those should come out of the box.

Still no change in v5 (Windows Management Framework 5.0 Preview September 2014).

I can confirm that this behavior still exists in PS ISE v4. This would be a great feature to add to make the ISE even better.
