How to make search on a 'man doc'


Hi all folks,

On terminal whenever I evoke 'man doc', it starts 'Shell-Konsole' window with the document displayed. But

Edit -> Find in History -> Find Console

searches a particular item on that page only.

Settings -> History -> History Config Console
setting 'Enable number of lines=Set unlimited" can't help.

Kindly advise how to search an item on the entire document instead of browsing from page to page

Thanks in advance.

B.R.
