    By design. The Find window is a panel, thus does not respond to window keyboard shortcuts. However, TextEdit.app seems to use the standard find panel which is responding to Cmd+W.

    During a discussion in the freenode IRC channel #kod it has been decided to put this feature request on hold.

    Kod uses Cmd+Shift+W for "Close window", but the Find panel will respond to both Cmd+Shift+W and Cmd+W, but only stop propagation for the Cmd+Shift+W event, thus when using Cmd+W, both the find window and the tab will receive a "close" action.

    Please use Cmd+Shift+W or ESC for closing the Find-and-replace window until we have a more feature-rich implementation. Thanks.
