How do I search all open documents?

#1

When I am looking for a keyword I usually just do ctrl+F and type in what i want to find. Is their a way to search all the open tabs at the same time, this way, i dont have to research on each file?

by using ctrl+f,if find a large number of matches, i can not glance over all match lines and get what i need quickly, i must press find button(or enter key) to view one by one.

Is there a way to search all open files in all windows? Ctrl+Shift+F works just fine, but only in current window.

I suspect not, but if all the windows are related to the same project, you could make a *.sublime-project file that included all the folders you have open in all your windows. Then Ctrl+Shift+F in a window that had that project open would search those, too.

@michaelblyons, thank you for your answer. :smiley:

Well, I know that. However, I’d like to search in all files, in all windows, in any projects, simply: in any and all open files. :smiley:

:+1: Sorry it didn’t help. Some people do not realize that a project can be multiple paths, and I wanted to make sure you weren’t one of them. Good luck!
