MacOS find pattern & cmd-E deserves system integration


Probably a bug: on macOS the find pattern is a system-wide pasteboard, so entering a new search string, or capturing the selection with command-E, then switching to another app the same search string will be in its find window. Some users might find this to be a unwanted feature so maybe it deserves to be an option.

Also, command-E has a standard menu item spelled “Use Selection for Find” (and perhaps some apps have a command-option-E item “Use Selection for Replace”, or maybe that’s just Xcode).
