I just started using vim mode. When I do “Find in Project”, then select an item, then want to dismiss the “Find in Project” pane, it seems Esc doesn’t do it. Esc switches from insert mode to normal mode, and once in normal mode, it doesn’t do anything.
I worked around it by hitting
cmd-shift-F again, then
esc, when the “Find in Project” pane had focus. That worked. But it feels like a workaround, not like the real thing.
