Find in files: please add option to make window stay open after search
niente0 last edited by
Hello, I have a very annoying problem with the “Find in files” window, I kindly asked some time ago on this forum if it was possible to add an option to make the “Find in files” window stay open after a search (as the standard Find window) but this option is still missing…
I usually do many consecutive searches into files (for example to count occurrences of a series of words), and I have to reopen the search window every time (this is really time-consuming!).
Is it just me who has this problem? Would it be possible in future releases to add an option in settings (or directly into the search window) to keep this window open?
Thank you all

I guess this is still happening, at least it does for me too.
But, concerning the implementation, I assume you get a better
chance to get this implemented if you ask for it at github.

Indeed, there is a setting, in the
config.xmlconfiguration file, which acts as you would like to ;-))
Just look for the
dlgAlwaysVisibleparameter, in the line
<FindHistory nbMaxFindHistoryPath="10" .................. isSearch2ButtonsMode="no">
Refer, also, to the official N++ documentation article, below :
Right ABOVE, this Find / Replace section, you’ll find the solution in the
2ndnote of the previous section !
Close all instances of N++
Open your active
Config.xmlfile with an external editor ( Microsoft notepad or else but not from within N++ )
Rewrite the part
Save the modification

I don’t see any setting possibilities for this parameter (??)

If you mean in the
Preferencesthen you are 100% right…there isn’t a setting for it. Perhaps open an issue for it on github if there isn’t one already?
