Richard is right, that's exactly what F4 does. If you don't want the
shorter matches then close the 'interactive search' window after the
first match is found. Then use Ctrl-N and Ctrl-P to go to the next or
previous match.

You can also use F2 which opens a dialogue box to search for words. It
will result in a window called List-Of-Found (LoF for short) that lists
all matches. Click on a match and the cursor will be moved to it. Again,
you can close the window and use Ctrl-N & Ctrl-P.

Cheers,
Fred.
