I'm running iTerm2. When do a text search ⌘ F, pressing Return moves the highlighted occurrence back (the previous occurrence). Is there a way to make it move to the next (forward) occurrence?
Searching in reverse is apparently how iTerm's search works by design (see https://gitlab.com/gnachman/iterm2/issues/4491).
As a user, I also find this design decision confusing.
If you would like to make
Find Next /
Find Previous in iTerm behave consistently with other apps, here are the proper keybinding overrides to add in
System Preferences > Keyboard.
Note that I had to restart iTerm for the keybindings to fully take effect.
