[StrongED] suggestion: beep or pink for "search fails"
When I'm typing into the Interactive Search dialogue in StrongEd and
it is finding only the first part of what i've typed, please could it
beep to tell me I might as well stop typing.
Sometimes it finds only one or two letters in the text, and it can be
hard to find the highlighted bit, or even to see what has happened.
A beep would be a welcome clear signal that my search has failed.
The beep idea comes from Impression's "check spelling of current word"
behaviour, where it simply beeps if the spelling is correct rather
than waste time opening a dialogue. It's a distinctive short beep
used only in that situation. Have always thought this a nexcellent
An alternative idea for the StrongEd Interactive Search thing could be
borrowed from Firefox: if what's typed is not found in the document,
the background of the search box turns pink.
Just a suggestion.
