it appears i cannot search the entire document while it's open in the online editor. the text that are not in view from the scrollbar are not taken into account during searching. am i missing something?

    The control itself does not always render "hidden" text and therefore contents will not be searchable using the browser's built-in search. This is a feature of the editor that cannot be worked around without replacing the editor itself.

    Additional search functionality is not currently exposed in the edit control, however, that is possible to add such a thing. It's a good suggestion and a much needed enhancement.
