On pressing the "find" hotkey, cursor focus does not move into the "find" field if the "find" window is already open

Steps to reproduce

  • Open a note
  • Bring up the find window by pressing hotkey (control F/command F).
  • Cursor focus will move into the “find” field.
  • Click the cursor out of the “find” field and into the content of the note.
  • Now, press the find hotkey again.
  • Cursor focus will remain in the body of the note.

Expected result

  • We expect to see cursor focus to move back into the “find” field after the user presses the find hotkey. But currently, the focus does not changed if the “find” window is already open.

Actual result

  • Upon pressing the find hotkey with the “find” window already open, cursor focus remains in the body of the note, instead of jumping into the “find” field.
