Hello you folks,
AFAYK, Is there any way to search for the text contained in the clipboard?
A simple paste won’t work if the clipboard contains text splitted on multiple lines
In another (overbloated) text editor you enter ^c to search for the current content of the clipboard, is there something similar for our beloved Notepad++?

It’s a bit of a chore, but you can do this:
paste the clipboard data into a (scratch) tab
select the multiline data in that scratch tab
switch the active tab back to the one you want to search in
Multiline data is now in the Find what box.
This assumes default Notepad++ settings where Ctrl+f is set up to auto-fill the Find what box with selected data.
