[Migrated] Make the Find and replace dialog not modal
Open, Needs TriagePublic


It would be extremely helpful if I could just keep the find and replace dialog box open all the time, and have it stay on top of the main AWB window. Right now, however, if I want to scroll down in the edit box when the find and replace dialog is open, I have to close the dialog, scroll down, and then reopen the dialog to continue editing my regex statements.

It isn't modal, see Feature Request Modeless Dialog "Text regex" (Couldn't spell). But I have the main window on my first screen and AFAR on the second. Perhaps, you want an always on top feature or a taskbar button?

Show rather than show dialog? IIRC?

I changed it to modal some time ago because when it was non-modal, closing it sometimes resulted in the main being hidden.
