Find in Buffer: find all


#1

In the Find panel, it would be great to have the Sublime Text “Find All” option (alt+return), that selects all matches in the current buffer, each with its cursor.

That was one of the greatest ST selling points for me.


#2

Have to agree. This is probably my most used feature for me with using ST.


#3

There is an enhancement open for the Find and Replace Package to add this functionality. https://github.com/atom/find-and-replace/issues/67

For sure it’s the biggest feature I miss from ST. Will try to mess with the code, but don’t understand much. =$


#4

Additionally, other multi-cursor helpers are a must:

  • middle-click + drag for block select. That’s block select with a cursor on every line.
  • ctrl alt Up/Down for expanding the cursor range vertically.

Can anyone recall any others?

These are basically a deal breaker for me, If I can’t manipulate large sets of text Theres just no reason to use this over soemthing that can. (I know ctrl+click works, am I then expected to click on all 90,000 lines of a csv to start manipulating it? I think not. And I’m talking about doing the kinds of manipulation that a regex find replace can not.)


#5

These should probably be in their own Feature topics so that we can track each request separately.


#6

It looks like this has now been implemented: Cmd-ctrl-g

It’s still quite slow with >100 cursors


#7

Is this implemented now ?
