Search is now context sensitive ?

Suddenly search has changed to context sensitive, correct ?

When I make a search within my source files, I just type it in fast and don't care about context sensitivity.

But now it does not find anything, unless it has correct sensitivity, ie. "uicolor" does not find anything, so I have to type "UIColor" to find it in the source.

Can this be changed and where ?

    Do you mean case sensitive? It still seems to ignore case for me in both the searches in the main UI and the "find in files" search from the menu has a checkbox for it.

    Yes, sorry. Meant case sensitive :-)

    You can change case sensitivity by clicking on the magnifying class icon in the search entry. Additionally, you can set the option Text Editor -> Behavior -> Automatically set search pattern case sensitivity, which will cause the case sensitivity to default to case insensitive each time you search, but change to case sensitive if your search string contains an uppercase character.
