Is there an easier way to return to the text window from the search window than typing an "*"?

There was a brief discussion about this on this thread:


These were my thoughts:
"Actually I've found typing '*' or locating it in history is a little bit fiddley. I've always thought a simple 'one-click' button beside the history button taking out of search and back to the full text would be really handy".

It seems to me like some kind of "Reset Search" button would be more user-friendly than typing an "*" and then having to remember that you should do type it into the search verses window and not into the search words window. There's plenty of unused space to the right of the words/verses button for a new button. Or maybe it could be a command under the Search menu with a keyboard shortcut. Or maybe it could be both places.

There is a New Search command in the File menu, but that opens a new tab. And it doesn't use the current panes you might have set up.
