1) I think it is natural to assume “>” should be after Find text box. What do you think, other users?

I agree it’s more natural. But for those keyboard hardcores, I think Viggen’s approach will be more efficient. I personly +1 on Viggen’s advice. After all this is Emeditor Professional 8-)

I am not sure if I understand this correctly. Do you mean Sticky Vertical mode? I don’t see the Word-Complete plug-in is temporarily turned off.

I record a demo for this.
