Find symbol in any file in project

Find symbol in any file in project

Postby Arjan on Sun Jan 27, 2013 12:29 pm

I absolutely love the ctrl+p => filename@symbol approach.

However, sometimes I know the symbol (like a function name) but don't recall the file.

Is it possible to do a search for symbol, in any file in a project? That would be mindblowingly powerful.

Thanks.

First post to this board, so hello everyone. I'd also be very interested in this feature. Call it what you will but it's sometimes very useful to have suggestions of files that may be interesting based on a fuzzy search of a fraction of a symbol name.

I think ctrl+shift+r is what you are looking for. It will list all the symbols in the project and you can then use fuzzy logic to narrow down to the symbol you are looking for.

Is exactly what you described. Remember it's a feature of ST3 and not available in ST2.

Well I was going to wait until ST3 is finally released before shelling out my hard-earned but that might just push me over the edge to get the beta earlier. Thanks for the info.
