Goto Anything - pebcak

Goto Anything - pebcak

Postby fxdgear on Tue Feb 15, 2011 4:57 pm

Maybe I don't understand how goto anything works...

I have a bunch of directories in my project. I know that there is a whole bunch of html template files that contain the text "repost_url"

When I hit comand-p and start typing repost_url I don't get any hits. Even if the only document that is open is one that has the text "repost_url" in it.

I am sure I'm doing something wrong. Maybe I misunderstand how goto anything is supposed to work.

Advice?

Thanks

Goto Anything will search through the names of all files, or the contents of a single file, but not the contents of all files. You have to use Find in Files for that, unfortunately.

jps,

Thank you. That would definitely explain why I was having problems with it! Thank you for clearing that up for me.
