Search all files has not worked in Windows for a long time


Sublime Text bug previously reported and still not fixed

I LOVE Sublime Text. And I am a big promoter of it. (Even doing demos of it a local dev events).

The issue is that Find in Files doesn’t work in the Windows version if the search path has spaces in it. It never works.

Here is a link to a demo of it on

I will also attach the video if allowed.

Please fix it or show me what I am doing wrong.




The problem is that your folder has a , in its name and thus ST is treating that as separating the search terms. Unfortunately I don’t think there’s a way to work around that bug for now; beyond renaming the folder.
