Closing the Find Bar

Closing the Find Bar

Postby importune on Mon Feb 27, 2012 2:26 pm

Hello Guys,

Software is awesome- on the verge of purchasing. I have to ask, though, why no "X" on the find bar? I tried using the hotkey twice to close it, but that doesnt work either. I occasionally press ctrl+f on accident, as I have another hotkey that is very similar. In order to close the find bar that comes up, I have to click on one of the find buttons- there is no x, and ctrl+f a second time doesnt close this bar?

Ideally, ctrl+f would toggle the find bar for me, instead of just opening it.

Let me know.

Thank you,
Mikel Bitson

Hitting the "escape" key will close the find bar or any open output consoles.

:o And this is where I feel like an idiot.

Thank you sir.


Still think hotkeys should toggle- but this works for me.

You'll get used to hitting escape all the time. Escape is also used to cancel out of multi-select (reduce multiple selections down to one selection).

There should still be a close button.

I am not sure if a close button should be added. But besided the escape key, it seems logical to me to toggle the find bar by pressing Ctrl+F again.

I like the escape button, but I usually navigate with whatever is closer (mouse or keyboard). If I'm holding the mouse, I look for an 'X' button. If I'm typing on the keyboard I look for 'ESC' or 'CTRL + F' or whatever. The 'X' would be nice. This is the only minor complaint I've had, it's not a 'deal breaker'. I really love everything about sublime text. It's fast, except for when a plugin is acting up, but the plugins are awesome (python & go, and anything else you could dream of). I only wish I didn't have to switch control over to the mouse/keyboard for this one Find/Replace bar. Would it be all that bad to squeeze a little 'x' into one of the corners (preferably the right-upper, since that is where the main action buttons are)?

Sublime Text 3 has an 'X' on the find panel, FWIW
