Geany editor find/search within folded code

I'm trying to use the Geany editor and when the code is folded the find/search will not locate text within the fold.  I looked at the options, read part of the manual, and googled it but I can't seem to find the option to find/search inside folded code.

What version? It sounds like someone may have opened a ticket on this -

I've given up and went back to gedit.  I was really looking forward to having code folding but not if it disables find.  Also, I also want region folding where I can define my own folds.  For me, it is better to do without than to have a feature that does something different from what I actually want.  Thanks for your help!

Update: I'm using Geany again and find is working great!  I still haven't figured out how to do custom folds but I suspect that they are supported.
