CTRL F only searches current viewing pane in Style Sheet or Unformatted Text

When performing a search, using ctrl f on your keyboard, within an Unformatted Text part or a Style Sheet, you notice you can only search within your current view pane. 

For example, you see 20 lines of code within your current pane. Your search result is on line 45, but as that is not within your current pane, the result is not returned.

Ctrl F, or search, is not returning the expected resulted. 
Download and install the latest patch, which contains all fixes from previous patches. If you are running an older version, download and install the latest version and then the patch.
