Ignore files/folders when using "Find in Files"

Robby 7 years ago • updated by Phil Strong 7 years ago 2

 It would be nice to be able to ignore certain files/folders when doing a project search. Right now I have to sift through a ton of junk to even read my search results. I'm fine with search just recognizing file_exclude_patterns and folder_exclude_patterns, but it may be useful to have specific patterns as well.

You can use negative patterns in the "In Files" section of find in files, such as "-*.lua,-*.js" to exclude *.lua and *.js files from the search results

But what if you need to exclude a folder within the one you've specified
