* Added a language selector to the Scratchpad, to enable syntax
coloring for the selected language. (As with other documents, auto-guess
on pasting into an empty scratchpad will work as expected.)

* The “Use Selection for Find” command and friends now work when the
Find or Multi-File Search windows are in front; they apply to the first
(in Z-order) window that’s not the Find, Multi-File Search, or Quick
Find window, as long as that window has a text view.
