I'm a bit puzzled by the global search workflow. See screenshot above.

The first occurrence is selected (line 1), which usually means that one can jump to the next one (on line 4) and so on. However, there's no way to do that.

Either I'm missing something or something is not quite right. e.g. I could open the local search, but then, I'd have to re-enter the word again. This is not a problem with the simple word test, but it might not be so easy when we use a more complex and lengthier word, or used search logic, in which case it might not even be possible to enter that in local search.

So we should either add a way to jump to the next search result or remove the selected search text property for global search.

But maybe I'm just not getting it, in which case I hope someone can explain the global search workflow to me.
