Within the Method Editor there is the command "Find Same", which locates the next occurance of the selected text. This option is the same as the "Find Next" option, with one exception.

Using "Find Next" requires that you run the "Find" command first, in order to find the word. But when using "Find Same", simply select the word and then run "Find Same".

By default the shortcuts are:


CommandShortcut
Find Same (Next)Ctrl/Cmd + E
Find Same (Previous)      Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + E

Very good tip since this keyboard shortcut has changed since 4D 2004
