Multi-Line Search and Replace Project-wide


So, SHIFT+CMD+F allows me to search/replace in an entire project. Good.
And CMD+F allows me to do a multi-line search/replace in the current file. Good.

But if I try to paste a multi-line in SHIFT+CMD+F, it does not find any result!
I think it’s messing the spacing, new lines, tabs or something…


If that’s the case, it sounds to me like either a bug or a missing consistency feature of the Find-and-Replace package.
And I can see there is an issue open which looks like it might be dealing with this:

Multiline search in projects?

This is such a basic functionality that many other editors have. Why doesn’t atom have this. Requests for this date back to 2014 and still not in the program. Why?
