If I have a very large * .txt file and I do a search where there are 1237 results. Is it then possible to only show the results and not have to press “Next” every time.

Hello, @steen-mikkelsen and All,
Yes, you can simply use the built-in N++

Select your search mode
Click on the
From this point, you can, either :
Go to the next or previous occurrence of your search with the
Shift + F2default shortcuts
Paste all your occurrences elsewhere by clicking on the
Copy Marked Textbutton
Use the menu option
Search > Bookmark > Copy Bookmarked linesin order to paste all the lines, containing at least, one occurrence of your search
You may use the
Bookmarksub-menu to cut or delete all these bookmarked lines, as well

without additional information it’s hard to "guess"what your needs are.
However, like Guy, I will try to make a guess.

In the Search > Find dialog, instead of hitting Find Next, you can click Find All in Current Document. This will find all the occurrences in the current document (or in the current selection, if that checkbox is marked), and will list them in the Search Results panel. You can then scroll through the list of all lines with matching text, and select whichever one you want to navigate to in the main editor. The Search Results is documented in the online user manual.
