Search and Replace - Multiple Files¶
To open the search panel for files, press Ctrl + Shift + F. You can use the keyboard to control some search panel options and search actions:
|Toggle Regular Expressions||Alt + R|
|Toggle Case Sensitivity||Alt + C|
|Toggle Exact matches||Alt + W|
The Where field in the search panel determines search scope. You can define scopes in several ways:
- Adding individual directories (Unix-style paths, even on Windows)
- Adding/excluding files based on a pattern
- Adding symbolic locations (<open folders>, <open files>)
It is also possible to combine these filters using commas; for example:
/C/Users/Joe/Top Secret,-*.html,<open files>
Press the ... button in the search panel to display a menu containing these options.
In the search panel, you can customize the display of results with the following options:
- Show in Separate Buffer/Output Panel
- Show Context
