I am often frustrated trying to find strings I know they exist in my file but TS doesn't find because they appear above the position of the cursor (another common reason is having the pdf as the top window when I do the search, but I don't know if anything can be done about that). This is a minor inconvenience, I recognize, and can be made to go away by using Find All, instead of Find. But since this seems to be a slow week with the list, I thought it wouldn't hurt to throw this request in the wish list.

You can do that two ways. You can have the Find wrap or you can set the search to start at the top of the file. I've attached a screen shot of my OgreKit Find setup. I've also opened up the More Options (it's toggled to Less Options in the picture) so you can see other things I've set. I use a wrapped find starting at the cursor. Choose what you want.

If that isn't the Find window you are seeing check your TeXShop->Preferences->Source->Find Panel setting to make sure you're using the OgreKit Find Panel rather than Aple's Find Panel.

Good Luck,
