Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.5
Sometimes I open up multiple windows of TextEdit and multiple tabs on Chrome and use the
Cmd-f to find certain text. In each window, I'm looking for different texts. However, when I switch between the windows, the search text automatically transfers itself to the next window, and I lose my previous search results.
How do I make
Cmd-f search text local to the application window, and not transfer itself when I switch between windows?
- In Chrome - tab 1, I searched
chickens. 300 results show up. I scrolled to the 150th.
- In Chrome - tab 2, I searched
- When I switch back to tab 1, the search text automatically switches from
I have to enter
Cmd-f all over again, and it might just start again from the 1st result, and I have to press
Enter 149 times. So far this behavior has happened when switching between chrome tabs, between Chrome and TextEdit, and between TextEdit windows.
