In general when we do a Find in Notepad++, it starts from the current cursor position and continues till the end of the document.

Due to this, to search a complete document, we have to go to the beginning or end of the document and use Find Up / Find Down.

Is there a way to continue the search again from the top of the document after reaching the end of the document. Any npp plugins that would get this work done?
