Using latest 5.1 build...

How about some keyboard shortcuts in the SQL Find/Replace dialog? Some of us prefer to use the keyboard whenever we can, because it is much faster.

Then, what about tabbing through the controls? Not sure how this is meant exactly.

Sorry about the long delay in reply... somehow my user account got locked, so I had to sign up for a new one.

What I mean is keyboard accelerator keys. Like Alt+F for Find, or Alt+A for Replace All. Tabbing through the buttons certainly is NOT faster than using the mouse, but being able to press a single key combination to access a button is. The Backward and Forward options already have keyboard accelerator shortcuts on them... I'm just asking that the rest of the controls on the page be given the same treatment.

Love having access to the accelerator on the Replace All button... thanks!

Would it be possible to add an accelerator key to the Find button at a minimum? Having them on the other buttons would be very welcome as well.
