This issue create small problem because I have to remember if I selected 1 or more lines in document. I think that dialog should switch automatically to 'selected'. I need to have choice to do it myself. Thank you.

Thank you for logging this issue. The appearance of the Quick Find control is tied to its scope. For scopes smaller than Current Document, such as Selection, the Quick Find control does not appear on other documents. In your rpero steps, as you have rightly observed, there is an active selection in the file which causes Find to switch its scope automatically, which is a convinience feature. This inturn causes it to not appear on other documents.

To make it appear on all documents, please change the scope to All Open Documents.
