Some time ago I read about an option that fixes the behavior the 'n' and 'N' keys cause when continuing a search in vim. That is, by default 'n' performs a forward search if the search was triggered with '/' but a backward search if the search was triggered with '?'. With this option set 'n' would continue searching towards the end of the document irrespective what search mode I am in. Similarly, 'N' would unconditionally search towards the beginning of the document.
I've tried to find the reference or really any hint as to how this option is called but I was unsuccessful. Does anybody have an idea what I am referring to? It is possible that this option is actually specific to neovim. I don't recall this detail.
