The thing is, when you are entering regular expressions, you don't want, say, a caret ^ (which can mean, for example, the start of a line, or act as negation inside square brackets) to expand to ^{•}, etc. This is a nuisance. And it is not practical to disable and reenable key bindings each time you search for something. So, yes, an option to turn key bindings off for the OgreKit panel would be welcome.

I agree with Eric here. I don't think Key Bindings should be active in the Find panel at all. What Yusuke has done with simply turning that off (available as <http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5807100/OgreKit_withoutKeyBinding.zip>) is just right.

Good Luck,
