Adds a simple search bar to the reviewer and any editor (e.g. in the Browser, and the Edit Current window). To access the search bar you can use Ctrl-F. To invoke it in the browser, you need to use Ctrl-Alt-Shift-F instead (all other shortcuts are taken up). To find the next result, use Ctrl-G. For the previous result, use Ctrl-Shift-G. To close the bar, click the red X, or use Ctrl-Escape. All of these shortcuts are settable from "Tools > Add-ons > Search Bar > Config".

What is the shortcut for macOS?
Comment from author
Just replace Ctrl with Cmd, so Ctrl-F will become Cmd-F.

Works in the edit window, but not in the browser (2.1.35)
Comment from author
Just use "Ctrl-Alt-Shift-F", like I've written in the description.
Your mouse focus must be in the editor as well. So you should click a field first, before you invoke it.
