Search issues


Been having off and on issues with search/replace lately. Try to replace all, doesn’t work, then a tooltip message pops up giving me the keyboard shortcut for replace all (that doesn’t work either, and the tooltip won’t go away). The replace all button is then unclickable, and I haven’t been able to get it to work except by relaunching Atom.

Haven’t tried with a safe-mode launch - can someone remind me how to do that?


There was a recent change that makes it so you have to execute a Find first before the Replace function is enabled. This is to prevent accidental replaces of things with something unintended.


ah, got it. Thanks, @leedohm


This should be an option. I was very happy before someone felt that they had to protect me from myself.
