    I'd like to search & replace a string in multiple files which are spread out in several folder. Is this possible?

    No, that's currently not possible within TXS. I'd recommend to use another editor for this. On windows, Notepad++ is quite handy, on Linux/OSX you'll most likely already have a favourite editor.

    Thank you very much for including this feature in 2.8. How exactly does it work?

    • CTRL + F

    • I enter my term.

    • Hit the +-button at the end of the row.

    • Choose all docs from the dropdown menu.

    • Hit Update search (or wahtever exactly it says in English, I have it in German).

    The catch is, at this point it only seems to search for files with the search term in their name, but not for text/content in said files.

    Did I misunderstand something or make an error along the way?

     
    • Searches only in opened/loaded files, not in the folder.
