I think shift is a fine discoverable key in a find dialog.
Once people understand that option discovers options in menus, this is a
very easy and comfortable habit: it is the best solution I know of. The
alternatives are more items (impossible to use), or no discoverability at
all (yuck).

I think if Textmate started its help on launch by default, and also gave
start-up tips enabled by default users would learn more, more quickly.

The screen casts and manuals are going to make a massive help!

Ctrl-S. A massive nice feature, still undiscoverable by any means :-(

It absolutely needs to be in the Find menu. (and in help, under find and
under incremental).

Hey Allen: hope you are having a ball! Sooo wish I was skiing right now:
nothing beats downhill racing.
