[Geany-devel] Default search behavior is irritating

It took me a little while to find the Search preferences. I did not expect
them to be filed under 'General' -> 'Miscellaneous'.
>From a usability perspective: In my attempt to configure search, I first
looked in "Editor", and then "Interface".
I was getting very irritated with the message "<keyword> not found. Wrap
search and try again?". It happened every time I searched for something
while my cursor was near the bottom of a document. Now I am finding that
the "Always wrap search and hide the Find dialog" setting is insufficient,
since my personal preference is to always wrap search, but keep the find
So may I please request the following modifications to search:
- Move the 'Search' preferences to 'Editor' -> 'Search & Replace',
instead of 'General' -> 'Miscellaneous'
- Remove the "Always wrap search and hide the Find dialog" setting.
- Add a 'Wrap search' checkbox to the Find dialog, below the 'Close
- Make 'Wrap search' checked by default.
