Help with search function

  • Hello
    I have some problem with the search function in notepad.
    Quite often when i try to find a word, for example “menu”
    the word is not found although its in the textfile in
    several places.

    Is there any place i can check the settings
    for the search function?

    Greetings Hakan

  • <Ctrl>+f should open the find dialog. Make sure you have not accidentally told NPP to search back/up. I did that once and was sure the editor was broken. I always keep wrap around enabled to I avoid this possibility.

    Also, pay attention to the ignore case, find whole word, and use regular expression settings which can sometimes cause unexpected results.

  • Thanx :-)
