Find should default to Current Document, Entire Solution, depending on context

VS2010 would default the Find dialog scope to the Current Document if hitting Ctrl-f from within a document; and Entire Solution if selecting Edit->Find and Replace->Find In Files / Replace in Files.

Visual Studio 11 does not seem to have this capability. It appears to always use the last specified scope. If I last searched within Current Document, clicking Edit->Find and Replace->Find In Files still shows Current Document as the scope, when I actually wanted Entire Solution.
