It's really difficult to find setting because you need to browse every tab searching for it. Would be great if it was possible to search like it is implemented in PhpStorm.
Hmm, I'm using SmartGit 6.5 and IMHO the actual number of items in the Preferences is low - thus finding anything is super easy for me.Although I agree that it could be useful in some future, when amount of settings would be much bigger.
I think this issue might be best folded into the All SmartGit settings in a single dialog request, which also mentions search as an aid to discoverability.
There's also a request to "Add "fast global search" capability for fast access to commit info and SmartGit commands" which sounds like it would satisfy this request.
