Multiline Search


#1

I would love to see multiline find/find and replace like BBEdit has…any plans to add this to a future release?


#2

@thomasjo didn’t you run across this request on Issues?


#3

Sure did! https://github.com/atom/atom/issues/3892#issuecomment-59661993

Until this gets fixed (assuming it does), you can work around this by using a pattern like

(.*|\n)*?

```

The actual pattern there is quite specific to the issue, but the concept is general and is a functional workaround until the issue on find-replace gets resolved.
