UltraEdit, bless its little heart, has two different FIND functions, "Find" and "Find in Files"

"Find" works as Ron describes - it opens dialog box listing all the lines containing the search text. You can click on a line and the cursor will move to the line in the editor window, or you can copy all the lines to the clipboard.

"Find in Files" is similar, but it lists the lines in a docked window rather than a floating dialog box. It can search in the files you have open, or in the files in a directory (and optionally files whose names match a pattern, and files in subdirectories).

It's a powerful combination of features.
