Improved 'Google search to Find box' transfer
Authored by: perihelion on Oct 17, '05 10:39:06AM

It would seem to me that what is done is that the google search replaces what is currently in the command+E "clipboard". This is the "find clipboard", and if you command+E something, just like copy, and then enter a find dialog, that thing should be the thing you find in the find dialog.
God that is a clumpsy explanation, but just test it out and you'll see :)

I would like to know how, in more than ten years on the Mac, I missed the existence of Command-E. . . . Just plain stupid? Wait--it's RTFRM. I never read them. . . .I bet there's some connection.

I never noticed Apple-e, so I'm glad you folks mentioned it. Sure enough, it's in Safari's Edit|Find menu. Nice! Now that I know it's there, I will probably use it.

So it is....


5 years on a Mac and never knew about Cmd+E either! *bangs head on desk*... and it's incredibly useful too.

Wow.

Thanks!!

Ahh, so that's what Use Selection for Find (Command-E) does. Thanks!
