There is one keyboard shortcut that I find so useful in Matlab 6.5
that it keeps me from using the new Matlab 7.5 we just bought at
work.  It is the following:

Control - h

In Matlab 6.5, you could select a word, then click Control-h to very
quickly find subsequent occurrences of that word.  Control-Shift-H
searched backwards.  This avoided the need for using the slow search/
replace gui (also very useful, don't get me wrong).  How do I get the
Matlab 7.5 editor to behave this way?  (Note that F3, which is
labelled 'Find Next' in the pull-down menu, does NOT work).

Thanks a million for your help!
