It would be nice to be able to run a find and replace only in the selected tab. While having the ability to run a replacement of text on many files is nice, usually you do not need to. I do webdev and you come across a lot of index.php files, having to close out of all the 'open files' with the same name just to be able to run a replace on things inside the current file is more than a bit of a pain. It would also be nice to be able to step threw the find results one at a time and choose if you wanted to replace them.

Sorry, I really should have gone threw the options in the menu (I simply tried ctrl-shift-f by default). Thanks for the quick reply and modifiable keyboard shortcuts!

Thanks for answering Andy, but why shouldn't that be included in the options for the "full" find and replace see image

(Mac keyboard shortcuts, ST 2.0.2)


cmd-shift-f (in menu, Find > Find in Files) brings up the 'Find / Where / Replace' tool as pictured, which applies to all open files


cmd-alt-f (in menu, Find > Replace...) brings up a more traditional 'Find / Replace' that only targets the currently focussed file


So, use cmd-alt-f (Replace...) instead of cmd-shift-f (Find in Files) to avoid this problem.
