How do I search all open documents?

How do I search all open documents?

Postby come2gether on Sun Apr 08, 2012 2:00 am

When I am looking for a keyword I usually just do ctrl+F and type in what i want to find. Is their a way to search all the open tabs at the same time, this way, i dont have to research on each file?

Use ctrl+f

by using ctrl+f,if find a large number of matches, i can not glance over all match lines and get what i need quickly, i must press find button(or enter key) to view one by one.
