I sometimes have selected text when I open the find panel and Sublime Text defaults to "finding in selection". I never want this, any way I can disable it?

At the bottom of the link provided by d_rail.

On OSX you can add the following to your

    { "keys": ["super+f"], "command": "show_panel", "args": { "panel": "find", "in_selection": false } }

Or this for Windows or Linux

    { "keys": ["ctrl+f"], "command": "show_panel", "args": { "panel": "find", "in_selection": false } }

To your keybindings file to change this behaviour.
