If I change my selection while doing "find in selection", I have to close and re-open the find panel for it to change which selection it's searching in. This makes sense; obviously Find itself changes the selection as I find, but it'd be nice if it would change the target selection if I press command+f again without closing the panel in between.
It'd be nice also if there could be some indication (an outline, maybe?) of the selection that it's searching in—I'm frequently confused when it can't find something I know is in the file, and it was just because I had a multi-line selection when I opened the find dialog. It would also be more clear if the status bar could say "Unable to find xxxx in selection" and "Wrapped past end of selection" instead of "end of file" or what have you.
One last thing: is there an option for turning off "automatic slurping"? (I'm not sure what it's called) I.e., when I press command+f I don't want my buffer selection to be copied into the find panel. This option existed in Sublime Text, but I can't find it in Sublime Text X.
