I noticed that find can’t handle large results and will crash. I often am unable to cancel the search and have to wait for the crash.
This happens to me a lot due to how Find works. When the Project Find Results are open, it will automatically perform the search as you are changing options. Here’s an example scenario.
My initial search is for a define which I use regex. I have the regex and case sensitive options checked. My search term is
I am checking results in files and want to refine the search. The Project Find Results are still open, but I am in a separate file. I start refining the search term as
define and realize I don’t need regex anymore. I disable the regex option, but now the search occurs again. Since my project is quite large with a lot of defines, atom crashes. It can’t handle the results coming up when searching for define.
Is this a known issue? Is there anyway to get the search to cancel without having to wait for the crash?
