How to focus buffer after Find All?

If I open the find/replace panel, search for something, and then click “Find All”, then all the matches are selected. Terrific. Now how do I focus the editor window instead of the find/replace panel in order to start doing something with those multiple selections? The only way I’ve found to do it so far is to use my mouse to grab the scroll bar of the editor, but that’s clumsy. Surely there’s a better way?

Sublime gets around this by closing the find/replace panel when you click Find All, which I’ve found is pretty much exactly what I want.

I use Esc to close the find and replace panel - whatever search result was selected at the time is maintained. Does that work for you?

Ah, yes, of course. I guess I almost answered my question myself when I mentioned what Sublime does. Thanks!
