Amaya keeps the selection in the document.
Normally it moves the focus into the  "Search for" and it works with Linux 
We'll check why wxWidgets toolkit doesn't do the same thing on Windows

The default search domain depends on the selection state:
- if there is no selection -> the default is in the whole document then search 
after the current selection.
- if there is a selection ->  the default is after the selection

That's quite more complex because you can combine all Show and Split entries.
By example:
- Open a second view with Show or Split (structure, table of contents, source, 
- Replace this second view by another with Show (structure, table of contents, 
source, etc.)
- Split vertically instead of horizontally
- Split horizontally instead of vertically

Only Split entries could appear with a check next to them, but we preferred to 
display an icon that explain what kind of split is generated.
