Using Github's Atom, I installed the atom-beautify package. This package has hundreds of lines of configurable settings.

My expectation was that hitting CMD + F would allow me to search for a string within these settings (e.g. CSS - Indent should find that setting - I am currently getting No results found...).

However, the find box that opens does nothing.

To clarify, I'm not asking how to Filter packages by name from the Packages view; I'm asking how to search for specific settings within a package settings page.


Thanks for the help.

  • The nuclide package implemented their own settings page, which includes the ability to search for settings. It's really nice, but specific to nuclide. I wish Atom had this feature. – IanVS Oct 19 '17 at 0:57

According to the issue #394 (and other referenced issues) seems like it is impossible to look for any setting in the Atom settings view.

I suggest you to configure the package with a configuration file using the following documentation - https://github.com/Glavin001/atom-beautify/blob/master/docs/options.md.

    Thanks. What a weird option not to have. Maybe I'll hack it together and create a pull request. – Yuval Feb 14 '16 at 15:24
