Yes, cowens1! I create a script to do this. My "Find" button performs a test to see if I'm already in find mode. If YES, Perform Find. If NO, Enter Find mode.
Hint: use Get(WindowMode) to test. If it's "1" you are already in find mode.
But you can do this how ever you need, canceling (return to Browse Mode), instead of Perform Find as I did.
That was exactly what I was looking for.
And consider Custom Menus to make the Find Command run Beverly's script. That way your power users — those who actually learn keyboard shortcuts — can benefit from the same options.
Actually, what I do is have a "Find" button that enters find mode and then when in find, if you click/tap on it, it performs the find...
my users find this quite intuitive.
