Search within Multiple Files and Directory

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    I think that a feature to be included in Notepad++ is the possibility to search a sttring in mutiple file within direcotry and subdirectory

    • Nobody/Anonymous

      I absolutely agree with you.  This appears to be a very nice editor, but with out a "Find in files" capability, it will not be able to unseat my other editors that do.

    • Nobody/Anonymous

      One more vote for this feature

      or :

      Anyone knows such an app which could do the job ?
      (search in this app and edit in notepad++)

      I'll do this feature as soon as I finish remapping shortcut and macros saving feature.

      Therefore It may be in the v3.1

    We use this feature all the time. It would be really nice to make it so we could enter in multiple paths for searching.

    If you just want to find the files (or complete lines) that match any search expression, take a look at Agent Ransack. It allows you to define multiple directories to search in.
