Is there a "find command" in Accordance?


This is a simple function available in any word documents or Internet browsers (usually short cut key is ctrl+F or command+F), not about word search in the Bible or lexicons.


What I wish to do is have a specific word highlighted on the screen that is already showing a search result, but ctrl+F doesn't do this in Accordance.



Thanks for your help!

Similar request have been made before. I think it would be useful too.

Dear Accordance Team: just as a reminder, this "Find on Page" functionality was said to be "high on the list of features for the next major rev." nearly 2 years ago.  See here.


For what it's worth, I would rank this literally as the #1 deficit in Accordance (for me personally)--especially compared to every other software or app out there--not only related to the Bible.


Consider this story: I just posted here two days ago asking about "The Context of Scripture" publication regarding Ancient Near Eastern texts, and I was thinking to myself,


"Accordance offers it for $200, while a competitor offers it for $300.  Gee, I'm so glad Accordance usually has the better price.  But, the competitor has the ability to search for Scripture references (e.g. Gen 1:1) in conjunction with English words or phrases and the competitor has the handy "Find on Page" locator, which I use constantly (in every software app, by the way), and neither of these Accordance offers."


Granted, Accordance' price for this module is significantly better, and I would prefer to put more of my eggs in one basket (viz., Accordance) if possible, instead of going with the competition.  But I tell the story to say that truly I had to stop and think twice about this just because the competitor offers these two vital search functionalities, while Accordance doesn't.
