In my Quick Find window, why is the Bookmark All button disabled?

It's disabled if you search for more than just the current document. I am not sure why this restriction is in place however. I would like to bookmark all across the entire solution.

Yeah, I see that now. Looks like Bookmark All is enabled for Current Document, Selection, All Open Documents, and Current Block; disabled for Current Project and Entire Solution. – Homer Dec 21 '11 at 17:56
Thanks for the correction. I gave up trying the other options after Solution and Current project but I knew Current Document works. Still hoping for a future workaround or addin to enable this.. – drescherjm Dec 21 '11 at 19:14
so, the only viable solution seems to execute a "search all", go into Find Results window and cycle through all results pressing F8 like a monkey, then execute a Search > Bookmark all with "Open Documents" option... :) – Notoriousxl Sep 26 '12 at 7:49

You can search in Entire Solution with: Ctrl+Shift+F (Find and Replace) window.

That is a workaround, not an answer to the question. – Jan Doggen Dec 27 '13 at 12:14
