Re: search for exact number

How to search exactly the number that I typed?

Search is a text search, so there isn't actually a way to search for a
number.  "123" shouldn't find "1.23E+02".  (It *sometimes* does, I
note, but that's a bug.)

It would not be too hard to make a search-for-number mode, though.
Please file an extension request at

In the meantime, searching for "^123$" as a regular expression
(on the Advanced page) and not searching in strings, is a pretty
good  substitute.
