using the system find string (Mac OS X)

using the system find string (Mac OS X)

Postby canisbos on Mon Sep 19, 2011 5:07 pm

Apologies in advance for not knowing the right terminology for anything.

Is there a setting somewhere to make Sublime Text for OS X aware of and use the system find string?

What I mean by "system find string" is this: Many Mac apps share a common find string. So, when you specify a find string (meaning, a string to find with the Find command) in any of these apps, you can then use, for example, the Find Again command in any other of these apps to search for the same string.

Don't know what I'm talking about? Try this: Select a word on a web page in Safari. Type Cmd-E (Use Selection for Find). Now switch to TextEdit or TextMate and type Cmd-G (Find Next). The editor will search for the same word.

It would be great if Sublime Text supported this functionality, if it doesn't already.
