Search in Project

Sublime editor allows you to set up projects consisting of a collections of folders.

Sublime editor allows you to search for text in a given folder.

Where is the option to search for text in all folders in my project?

Find in Files will search through all open files and folders when the "Where" field is empty. Alternatively, you can explicitly add them using the "..." button on the same panel.

Good to know about the search when the "Where"field is empty. But what constitutes an open folder? One with the disclosure triangle pointing down, so that the sidebar lists its contents?

"Open Folders" just means all the folders that are listed in the side bar

Thanks... that solves the issue for me. It was not obvious that after adding a folder to my project it would be considered on "Open Folder".

If the search text had said "All Folders in Project" it would be more obvious.
