Find in Project Files

Ken Richard 8 years ago • updated by Jon Skinner 6 years ago 4
The find in files lets you choose a folder for searching which is very nice.  It would be even better if there was an easy way to reset to the project folder.  Alternatively add a "Find in Project Files" option.

I agree! Handily, the Project/Find in Project menu item does just this :)

where is the  Project/Find in Project menu item?

 This would be an outstanding answer, if such a menu item existed. If it used to exist, and has been removed, can we pretty please put it back?

If you put   *.*   in the "where"  field of  "Find in files" , it

will search every file in your project (yes, in all subdirectories, too).

Of course, be careful before doing a "find and replace", as this will find your search term in all the comments also!!  So maybe just do a find first and check things out :) :)

The problem is that it searches every file in subdirectories within your project, even ones you removed with `"folder_exclude_patterns": ["excluded_directory"]`. Pretty annoying.
