Description
After installing Delphi 2010 I hit CTRL-F to find some text. Nothing happened ! After a looooong while I found the tiny little cute input field on the bottom of the screen. I have a 24" monitor and I almost missed the input field. Is there a reason to remove the old find-dialog ? This new input field is pretty close to being a "bug" instead of a "feature".

Agreed - this is really dumb and annoying. Especially since when you hit CTRL-R you get the old find/replace dialog. And in the 2010 I have installed, it seems that when I click the 'classic IDE' key mappings, CTRL-F does nothing! This must be fixed - adding new stuff is fine - removing stuff that was excellent for 15 just for the hell of it makes no sense.

Sigh of relief :-) So chances are good that the old dialog will be back ? The most funny thing is CTRL-SHIFT-F. This gives me the "search-all-files"-dialog ! Happy New Year !!

Not to pile on but, as with all change, this one seems to be one I may never get used to (and I don't like in Adobe PDF viewer)

However, maybe just a option setting for "old style Find" to allow for both styles and avoid people who DO like the new feature from complaining?
