Steen NielsenSubject: Feature request: remove limitation in "Find" input-field

I've just discovered an annoying limitation, that I really dont think should be there.

When using the Find dialog (Edit -> Find), and you write or paste in a long string of text, then you are being met by an alert with the text "Please enter no more than 128 characters.".

This is a rather odd limitation in a code editor, since a lot of developers work with a lot longer strings than that and it is usually easier, if you just copy/paste an entire string to the searchbox, to find that specific line among several hundreds or thousands.

By the way, the search/replace function is also limited in the "Find what" field, but not in the "Replace with".

It could be great to get some feedback to why this limit was actually introduced, as there probably was a great intention behind.

Hi Steen,

I don't know the reason for the limitation but I'll make sure to forward the feature request to the developers.
