Improved Find

PowerGUI Script Edit 1.7.1 has a few little improvements making editing and debugging scripts easier – one of my favorites is improved text search.

First of all, the Find (Ctrl-F) dialog box is no longer modal. Which means that you can access your script code, edit it, copy/paste and so on with the search dialog box on.

Even better, you can now search for anything without the dialog box open at all. F3 will find the next occurrence of whichever text you searched last time, and Shift-F3 for the previous occurrence.

Ctrl-F3 lets you find the next occurrence of the text currently selected in the editor (and Shift-Ctrl-F3 will do the same for the previous occurrence.)

All of these operations can be assigned different hotkeys using the Tools / Customize dialog box. The same dialog box also lets you put them on the editor toolbar.

I hope this makes editing and debugging your PowerShell scripts an even better experience!
