Compiler:          gcc version 3.3 20030226 (prerelease) (SuSE Linux)

If you have larger notes a find utility triggered with the usual Ctrl+F key-shortcut would really be great.

That's the only thing I am currently missing in knotes.

or better, a global shortcut that will open a search box and as a result will popup all notes contaning the mached text.

CVS commit by brade: 

Implemented the most wanted feature: Possibility to search the notes. (#76435)
I have yet to fix the shortcut which doesn't work yet.

Jeez, this wasn't as trivial as I thought, took me a bit more than a day! Probably
due to the fact that I tried every possible implementation with the
KFind/KFindDialog stuff, even making David aware of its limitations ;-)

Control+F doesn't work for me in 3.4 . Has this been included or not?
Comment 4 Joseph Reagle 2006-03-21 21:12:32 UTC
As of 3.5.1 it doesn't work either, why is this marked resolved?
Comment 5 Joseph Reagle 2006-09-11 22:06:14 UTC
Not in 3.5.4 either.
Comment 6 Joseph Reagle 2007-01-26 16:49:59 UTC
OK, I see it is in Knotes globally, not per note. Removing votes.
