Show matches while searching for text


When I do cmd-f and start typing, I get something like: 3

3 results found for ‘whatev’

Yet, that’s quite useless: since the window doesn’t scroll to the first match, I cannot tell what exactly I am matching.

Could the window just scroll to the first match, as any honest editor ought?


If you press RETURN, it will scroll to the first match. You can even keep typing if you want to be more specific and press RETURN again and again to cycle through the matches.


I moved a post to a new topic: What is the class used to style the search results?


Closing this since Atom offers this functionality.
