I have found what I believe to be a bug in the "Find In Files" function, but I would like to see if someone else can confirm it to be so.
I have 13 files, each with an identical section. All 13 files have exactly this same text, and each file has the exact same name (but each is located in a different directory). When I search for different parts of this text using "Find In Files", using the exact same settings, I get different results.
"start popup login styles" == 13 results (expected)
"F2F1ED" == 4 results (bug?)
".infoBox background" == 0 results (bug?)
I am running Notepad++ as Administrator, and in each search, I am searching for ., in all subfolders, and using Search Mode "normal" (not extended or regex).
I updated Notepad++ to the current version (6.3.3), but this made no difference.
If someone can find a cause for this unexpected behaviour, I would very much like to know.
--- identical section begins below this line ---
* start popup login styles
background: #F2F1ED; /* .infoBox background */
--- identical section ends above this line ---
Also, in each case where "Find In Files" fails to find the text, if I open that file and then simply search for the text using "Find", Notepad++ finds the text as expected.
I have discovered that this was user error. Sorry. :(
