Editor search enhancement

The latest Calibre introduces the following:

Viewer: Much improved search functionality
Now all matches are displayed when searching in a side bar with a few words of context.

Could this be enabled in the Editor as well, with scrolling allowed for numerous matches?

Editor search works on code, not text. And is designed to be a small panel so as to not be intrusive. All in all I dont see how it would fit.

It could be a dockable pane, just like Files Browser or Live CSS. Each result could be clickable - when clicked on one, its position and larger context would be shown in the File Preview.

Got it.

One last thing: could the code pane in the Editor be made (un)dockable, like the rest? If I'm proofreading a text with few typos, I'd like to be able to have the File Preview in the center and code pane to the right.

No as far as I know Qt has no way to undock central widgets. Only side panels

@mikpana - have you considered using Sigil's ePub Editor with PageEdit. I find it a good good combination for copy editing/proofing of content.

now that the calibre editor has an Open With maybe its possible to use PageEdit from within it - I'll give it a try.

FTR - PageEdit stems from Sigil's now deprecated Book View tool - developed and maintained by the same people.

Just did a quick test

Unsurprisingly I can open individual html files in PageEdit, and I could open the content.opf file it will give PageEdit access to the entire book - that was nice 'surprise'

Not quite as seamless as Sigil, but for me at least - good enough?
