Option to include "binary" files in Find in Files

Hamish O'Dea 6 years ago • updated by KratosGemini 5 years ago 1
Find in Files skips things it thinks are binary files, with this displayed in the console:
skipping binary file: /foo
I use plenty of text files that have non-text characters in them, and I would like those to be included in searches. I would prefer to use only the include/exclude patterns (and binary_file_patterns setting) to exclude binary files from the search.

Sublime Text 3 seems to have alleviated this issue. It shows "binary" files not in the exclude pattern in the find results. It will just say "<binary>" instead of a preview of the text.
