    I know there's a minimum lenght of 2 chars in the (ctrl-f) search box for speed/resultsize reasons.

    But can we have an exception for ' (the commenting char) ?

    It would be handy to find (temporarily) disabled lines of code without the need to scroll/page through the entire code.

    Note that there is no length limit in the "find / replace" dialog F3.

    The reason for this limit is that the quick search is based on an index that is being updated in the background when the code changes. Removing this limit can have a bad effect on the performance. Removing it for one specific character is not (reasonably) possible.
