Search In Files: a sneak peek at the next Nqq version

The focus of the next Notepadqq version has been the “Search In Files” feature. Here are some screenshots from the development version:

    In notepad++ I can search on Special Characters (as they are called in Notepadqq), but also replace text with Special Characters.

    When the replace executes, it isn’t inserting Special Characters, just the literal characters themselves.

    For example:

    Search for “,” (comma)

    Replace with NEWLINE.

    In Notepad++ this works if you select Extended Characters.

    In Notepadqq it just inserts the literal \n, not a Special Character.

    i notice the search is different with notepad++:
    1) replace text in notepadqq does not replace with regular expression
    2) search window does not support for find in current window / find in opened windows

    Using this Manjaro, it is very useful, I am missing one of my most commonly used XML Tools pretty print plugin. Apart from that it is very cool.

    Hi all,

    Using the nqq on ubuntu 14.04 LTS (MATE) – it looks very nice.
    Though, I cannot open multiple nqq (independent) windows on different workspaces.
    Any hint about this issue ?

    Is there a date where the next nqq version is coming out with the new searching features, resembling those of WIN notepadd++ ?

      The new search features are already landed. Are you using the latest version? (0.46.2).

      The workspace issue is a bug :/

        Thanks for the replay (sorry for my slow replay … ) !

        YES – I’m using nqq version (0.46.2).
        I have in my 14.04 LTS Trusty updates the (0.50.1) version – hope this will solve it ?!

    It would be cool if Nqq got a Facebook, Google+ etc so people across Linux G+ Groups could stay tuned in. This project deserves to blow up.

      This must be implemented. We need to let peeps and geeks know about this wonderful thing happening to our Linux world!
