Better integration?

You could also use the official API to integrate your search dialog in the "Find" dialog

See https://blogs.oracle.com/geertjan/entry/search_in_projects_api

Small Improvments search box

Could you add the selected text from the editor in the search box?

Small Improvments

Could you move the file selection block under the input line filter.
It would be convenient to select files after pressing TAB

Improvments

I think it would be better:
1) to look for in the tabs 'Files', 'Projects' too.
2) save search parameters and show after open dialog again

Hi,

Thanks for your response.

Point 1) I will add it to my pending list
Point 2) After searching, you can select multiple files and click OK to open all the selected files even now. However, I will try to incorporate your point also

Improvments

I think it would be better:
1) ignore case by default
2) do not close the search box after selecting the file (to select multiple files)

Wildcard support

It works. Very useful.

After installing the plugin, a new menu item "Find Files in Favorites" would have been added in "Navigate" menu as the last item. You can click that to start with... A window will come, where you can type some file name you want to search within the directories that you have added in your favorites window

Pls mail me if you find some difficulty.
