These are the non-standard options that MacVim supports:
'fullscreen' 'toolbariconsize' 'transparency'
+ *macvim-find*
+Whenever you search for something in Vim (e.g. using "/") the search query is
+copied to the OS X "Find Pasteboard". The idea is that if you search for
+something and switch to another application, then you can hit <D-g> (or <D-G>)
+to repeat the search in the new app. The same feature works if you search in
+some app, switch to MacVim and hit <D-g>.
+
+Note that the command |n| is not the same as <D-g>. The former will repeat
+the last search made in Vim, whereas the latter searches for the string on the
+OS X Find Pasteboard using the action findNext: (see |:macaction|).
+
+The <D-g> key equivalent is a great way to bring a search from one window to
+another in MacVim. Simply search for something in one window (using "/") then
+switch to another (e.g. with <D-`>) and hit <D-g> and the search will be
+repeated in the new window.
