In the PS ISE Script Pane it would be nice if instead of having to use Ctrl+F to pop the Find window, we could just use Ctrl+F3 to search for the currently selected text, F3 to move to the next occurrence, and Shift+F3 to move to the previous occurrence. If no text is selected when Ctrl+F3 is hit, it should find the next occurrence of the word that the caret is on. This is standard in most text editors today.
If implemented, it would make sense to also implement a "Wrap around" option as mentioned here (https://connect.microsoft.com/PowerShell/feedback/details/790583/windows-powershell-ise-add-wrap-around-option-to-find-replace-dialogues), as the "Search up" checkbox is only accessible from within the Find window.

Select some text and hit Ctrl+F3; nothing happens.
Select some text and hit Ctrl+F3; the selection should jump to the next occurrence of the selected text. If no text is selected when Ctrl+F3 is hit, it should find the next occurrence of the word that the caret is on.
