I’ve started using Atom on Windows, coming from Notepad++.
I’ve noticed that find and replace always automatically searches any file I switch to using the last entered search patter.
real world example :
I search for (-+.*? ) in order to replace with \n$1. This works fine on the current file that has 10 lines
I then switch to another file with 1k+ lines and I get hit by a lag. The find and replace window shows a new number of “matches”, indicated that it searched the file again, without me hitting find, F3, Alt+Enter etc.
Is there any way around this behavior? Note that I’m not talking about how many characters are needed to be entered before it starts highlighting, which I’ve switched to 50 to force it to stop.
