Frequently, when using the search window in iterative searches, alternate important words are needed to be added to the search criteria. So, by adding additional words separated by a comma and then closing with a parenthesis, I must move the cursor back to the beginning to add another parenthesis. An automatic parentheses closure feature would be swell. One complication would be multiple groupings. Perhaps, if more than one parenthesis is detected, no action is taken.

Mick,

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking for. Can you give an example of the kind of search you're putting together?

Thanks.
