Behavior change with "Find result" window

  • Hi all,

    With an old Notepad++ version, it was possible to copy-paste the whole text of the “Find result” window. By the whole text, I mean:

    • The number of hits and files
    • The path of every files
    • The Line number
    • and finally, the matching hit


    Search “Fix” (220 hits in 39 files)
    C:\Program Files\Notepad++\change.log (37 hits)
    Line 1: Notepad++ v5.6.8 new features and fixed bugs (from v5.6.7) :
    Line 3: 1. Fix comment stream without selection bug.
    Line 4: 2. Fix Find in files results highlighting regression bug.

    C:\Program Files\Notepad++\updater\gpl.txt (2 hits)
    Line 254: Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium

    Now, with Npp v7.3.3, when I select all and copy stuff, only the matching hits are copied, without the line number, the filename and blablabla.

    Does someone know how the renable this? Or is this a bug?

    Note: In version 5.6.8 (i know, it’s old), the copy/paste returns all the stuff mentioned.

    instead of using the mouse to select all, click into the find result window and do pressing ctrl+a and ctrl+c.
