Advanced/upgraded in-object search function

Is your feature request related to a problem? Give us a real world use case for this feature

On occasion, when searching in an object for a specific term, the user may accidentally press Enter too many times. The only ways to go back, are:

  1. To press enter until the first term is selected again
  2. To press Escape, and then re-search the term.

Moreover, a user may wish to know how many times a certain term appears in their object, and so they may search for the term. They must then manually count how many times the term appears.

Describe the solution you’d like
“Upgrading” the in-object search bar, to include buttons (to see the previous/next match of a search), would solve both of these inconveniences, and ultimately allow for greater efficiency.

Describe alternatives you’ve considered
Mentioned above.

Additional context
Ideally, the ability to see previously skipped searches, could also be complimented by a keyboard shortcut (e.g. SHIFT + ENTER).

Example design concept:

(*Also, this probably doesn’t warrant its own feature request, but the “Search” text is not vertically centred.)

I think this FR in combination with this one from Flip greatly improves the editor:

I think VS Code has a great design for this small search (and replace) bar.
