I 100% agree. Ctrl-F should toggle Search open and place the cursor in the 'Find' field. On every instance, even if it's redundant. Like nearly every other application on earth. I have lost count of the times I've hit it while the pane is opened, then typed garbage into the document itself.

 

The alternate commands avoid closing the pane and dumping the content into the document, but are still... misdirected.
