Description Marcos Cobeña Morián 2018-03-05 07:38:06 UTC
Hi guys,

I'm heavy user of CMD+. and most of the times just copy something in the current document, press CMD+. and paste it on the search bar. However, it doesn't start searching automatically, so end up deleting the last char and writing it back again.

Would it be possible to fire search on that case? I think can be interesting for other as well.

Thanks in advance!

Looking for recording a GIF with this issue I've noticed a slightly different flavour:

1. Copy any chunk of code from current document —an interface name, for instance
2. Press CMD+. —here the copied text directly appears pasted at the search bar
3. Press CMD+V to re-paste it again, and search triggers

In 2) we could maybe have the search working, so 3) isn't needed anymore.
