VS2010 : go back to old find dialog (like in VS2010) or allow disabling the quickfind

Hi all,

The new "Quickfind" - panel of VS2012 is annoying. It does not respond as expected and could not be positioned as needed.
It slows down all work.

So I would suggest to go generally back to the old "find dialog" or allow the users to disable the new "quickfind" toolwindow.

Best regards,
dp.

        Totally agree. The bitmap buttons for case sensitivity, whole word, and regular expressions are inscrutable, and it's hard to tell at a glance if they are enabled or not. On a 30" monitor having it pinned to the upper right is very inconvenient. Also, the autocomplete behavior of the search history combo box changed in subtle ways that make it less useful.

        The new dialog causes constant friction in an extremely high-traffic feature that has been stable for many years. Please give us the option to use the old dialog!
