StudioTools > Incremental Search

Incremental Search makes it easy to search for strings in the file you are currently editing. Unlike the search options built into Visual Studio, this plugIn doesn't open a new window and gives you a quick list of all the matches so you can select the next one.


To activate Incremental Search, select it from the Studio Tools menu or press the Ctrl+I shortcut. When the search box appears, just start typing the text you are looking for.

You can use the arrow keys to navigate through the results and select the match you are looking for. The numbers by each match indicate the line and column number where the matching text was found. Simply hit return to navigate to the match. Unlike Smart Goto, only the currently open file is searched.

Case sensitivity

The case sensitivity button on the Incremental Search dialog controls matching behavior. By default, all searches are case insensitive.
