Search function in the style sheet editor

On our radar

I would like to have a search function in the stylesheet editor, so I do not have to copy the entire style to Microsoft Word before I can do a search.

The top right Search works on stylesheet editor.

If you open the stylesheet editor and then go to the Search and type your "search text" there should be a option to search on stylesheet. 

After that use F3 to search for next or Shift + F3 to search for previous.

Hi Abilio Matos, 

First of al, thanks for your valuable input.

Is it not more user-friendly to show a search functionality on the screen itself? Several developers have indicated that they do not know how to search in the CSS file.

Agree that it isn't the most user-friendly, but I would say that the stylesheet editor isn't user-friendly, at least for me.

That popup editor should be reviewed.

I would go a bit further and suggest to have a left-side navigation panel in style sheet editor, like we have in Microsoft Word, whose content is fed by the document's headings and sub-headings.

In the style sheet editor's case, the navigation panel's content could be fed by special comment tags.
