You're stepping through many files, you read the stuff,
you know that typing "hello" instantly searches "hello".

But then you read a complicated long word like:


this is so great, you want to search it as well.
But for heaven's sake, don't type it. Instead,

   -  press the SHIFT key and KEEP IT PRESSED.
   -  click on the word, with the left mouse button.
   -  release the left mouse button.
   -  release the SHIFT key.

And just as if you typed it, it is searched instantly.

In this example, the word was found instantly three times.
Click into any line to jump to that text location.

shift click phrase search

So, clicking on a WORD searches that word, instantly.
But what if you have a text like

   long nResult = FooController::currentBar("Lemon");

and actually want to search the phrase "FooController::currentBar"?
Follow exactly these steps:

   -  press the SHIFT key and KEEP IT PRESSED.
   -  click on FooController and KEEP LEFT BUTTON PRESSED.
   -  move the mouse gently to the right, over to currentBar.
   -  RELEASE the mouse button.
   -  RELEASE the SHIFT key.

And then, the full phrase "FooController::currentBar" is searched.
