Search feature starting over at the top of the file?

Is there a way for me to make PhpED circle back up to the top of the file when I'm searching for text within a document? For example, my cursor might currently be positioned in the middle of the document. If I search for a string using "cursor position" as the origin (which is how I like to do it), the search feature will find all occurrences of that string from my cursor position to the end of the file as I continue to press F3. However, once it reaches the end of the file, it will just tell me that it can't find the string anymore. Is there a way to make it automatically start searching from the top of the file again? I don't want to change the origin to "entire scope" because then I lose my cursor position. I just want to be able to cycle through the file over and over with F3 without the search coming up empty at the end of the file.

I hope these things will come soon.

See:

search-replace-small-enchancement-t2310.html

It's really annoying if you have to search a lot in PhpEd. I often use Ultraedit parallelly for searching.

And another suggestion: Shortcut to find the previous occurence of the search word.

For instance:
Ctrl-F3: Set current selection to search word and search next occurence.
F3: search next occurence of search word.
Shift-F3: search previous occurence of search word.
