Studio shortcut to move from Search (F4) to the actual segment found?

Dear colleagues,

I often use search function in Studio 2011, particularly the F4 shortcut. The process is not as efficient as I would like it to be because when I have found a segment using F4, I can't seem to find a way to actually get into this segment using keyboard - I have to click it. When I press keys like for example right arrow, it moves me somewhere else.

Does anybody know the magical shortcut to start editing the segment that I found?

Close the dialog box using the shortcut Alt+C and the cursor will move from the dialog box to the segment in question.
To continue searching, press F4, although the focus won't move to the new segment each time.
If you want to edit these segments, the best thing would be to enter your search term in the display filter box.
HTH,
Emma

Thank you Emma. When using the Search dialog, I press Cancel instead of Alt+C because Cancel doesn't depend on the active keyboard, unlike Alt+C.

However, I was more interested in the other method whereby I just press [Shift+]F4 without opening the dialog. It's more efficient, especially when searching backwards. There must be some secret shortcut for this, it would be strange if there weren't since it's a fairly basic navigation scenario.
