Searching in selected text

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

I'm not sure whether or not this qualifies as a bug, but I would like to get some hints on fixing it. Try the following, in the demo app:

- Select a bunch of text, for instance from line 23 to 32
- Ctrl+F to search
- Check "Search in selection"
- Search for "type"

Now, when you press Find next, the first instance of the word type is selected. However, the old selection is lost, and when you press Find next, it doesn't find the next instance of type, probably because the selected text is now simply "type". Visual Studio handles this just fine, so I thought that SyntaxEditor and the demo should as well? :)
