Find/Replace Window close shortcut

Is there a keyboard shortcut for closing the Find/Replace window? Sigil has shortcuts for almost everything, but I can’t locate a shortcut for that window.

If a shortcut doesn’t exist, I can make a macro if I know the name of the close button (red square and white X). The name isn’t ‘close.’

Not as far as I know, I've looked for it myself. Something like Alt+F to hide/show it would be good.

According to the ui form, the close button is a tabstop. So you should tab toit and hit enter to hide it when using only the keyboard.

See the tabstops section of the following form file.

From the Find box it takes 9 Tabs to get to the Close button. Qt's highlighting of the current widget is very hard to see at the best of times; on the close button, for me at least, it's highlight is effectively non-existent.

Shift+Tab in Find box lands on the expand button (bottom left) and the highlight is barely visible, another Shift+Tab does nothing, Tab from there and the focus goes back to Find.

So yes you can Tab to it, but it requires up to 9 tabs, one too many and its another 9 tabs

If F&R already has the focus, ESC will close it.

so it does, and you can give it focus with Ctrl+F

I won't pretend I knew that all along. I was just playing around with it today after I saw this question.

When I've looked for a shortcut it has been was when I wasn't in F&R, but wanted to hide F&R, so I resort to using the mouse.

IMO ctrl+f, Esc is more than good enough Maybe the close button isn't even needed :duck for cover smiley:
