This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.



Ctrl+F on Windows/Linux or +F on a Mac.

or just go to the menu "Find" and use the option almost at the bottom called "Find in Files".

To search in all open files, add this to the Where textbox:

<open files>

If you want to search in folders and such, please just look at the right of the textbox and see there's a button .... Click on it and it will show you options.

  • Mamsaac's answer is also supported in Sublime Text 3, for those who are wondering. – lucas Nov 30 '16 at 15:44

    When I try this (Sublime Text 3.1.1 on Mac OS), it doesn't search all open tabs; it only searches open tabs within the current window. – LarsH May 30 '18 at 12:31
