Please Add Confirmation To 'Find All'

  • On many programs (Visual Studios for example) I’ve gotten into the habit of hitting Ctrl + Shift F, then Ctrl + V, then Enter in rapid succession in order to find symbols (variables, functions etc) throughout code I’m developing.

    On Notepad++, due to having many files open (often large text log files), or perhaps due to having many files in the default search directory, this particular sequence of keystrokes causes the program to crash and hang indefinitely, and as a result I lose whatever I have unsaved in the program. This has happened to me several times already.

    I would really appreciate the ability to cancel a ‘Find All’ search that’s in progress, or a confirmation if the search is expected to take more than 5 minutes.
