search-defaults-from: preference variable
Default value: 1
This variable controls what initial search string appears when you use
a searching command like incremental-search or query-replace.
0, Epsilon never provides an initial search string.
1, whenever there's a region highlighted when you invoke the
search command, that becomes the initial search string; in other cases
there's no initial search string. The highlighted region is ignored
when it's very long, a macro is running, the
typing-deletes-highlight variable is
zero, or Epsilon has been set to restrict searching to a highlighted
region with search-in-region or replace-in-region.
2, the search string from the previous searching command is
always the initial search string.
