Direction In Find
So I want to use the direction function, as in up and down in the find section. I would like to either know what version of notepad++ still has it, or how I can do it on the latest.
@alan-kilborn No I am on extended.
Ah, okay, it’s a bit like pulling teeth, but I’m rereading your original question in a non-regex mode context…
Maybe you are referring to “very old” Notepad++ software, where there were Up and Down radio buttons?:
If so, then I’ll point out that newer software consolidates this functionality into one control:
However, most people don’t use that, I’d say, because you can easily turn on “two button” find mode with the checkbox to the right of Find Next:
and achieve this:
where you have backward and forward directional searching with a single button press.
Also note that the Enter and Shift+Enter keys when the Find window has input focus will also serve to find the next and previous matches.
Hopefully this covers everything you need about this feature?
@Alan-Kilborn Thank you very much this helped a lot.
