Add "Quick Add Next" behaviour


#1

One feature I miss (or haven’t worked out how to use at least), is something like “Quick Add Next” similar to SublimeText.

The way this works is you select a bunch of text, and then using the menu item Quick Add Next (⌘D) the next matching string is added to the selection. This makes is very easy to quickly edit many instances of a string in a file.

It works for me (using ⌘D) with the default configuration @jstr.

Yeah, if it isn’t working for you, please open an issue on https://github.com/atom/find-and-replace

It should be implemented though and you should see it from the Find menu.

Tried again, and it does. Thanks all.

Glad to hear it, if you find it flaky again in the future definitely open an issue here: https://github.com/atom/find-and-replace
