I was thinking of bypassing the manual choice entirely and always using the highlighted portion of text as the Find value. It’s how Sublime Text, Atom, and IntelliJ all work, but perhaps that’s not the best then? All those other editors are not native Mac apps, so maybe if I try to bypass the ⌘E, that will detract from the native experience and choice. I had not considered that at all. Thoughts?

By myself I'm using ⌘E followed by ⌘G [find next]. But your workflow can be implemented by using a macro à la

	{	command = 'copySelectionToFindPboard:'; },
	{	argument = {
			action = 'findNext';
			wrapAround = :true;
		command = 'findWithOptions:';

bound to any key equivalent.
