PyCharm's has two search features:

  • Search everywhere (Ctrl+Shift+f)
  • Normal search (Ctrl+f).

Normal search only searches in the current file, but Seach everywhere can't search for literals containing whitespace.

Does PyCharm (version 2017.2.3) have this option?

E.g. in my case I know that somewhere in one of my many files I have a comment saying this is a comment, how do I find that (assuming the word comment isn't unique enough this use as sole keyword)?


I don't have version 2017.2.3, but just the next version (2017.2.4) and highers ones have no problems with literals containing whitespaces.
