A plugin for Sublime Text 2 and 3 that adds an additional pair of methods for quickly searching for text within a page.
Two additional search methods are available:
find_selected_next - If some text is selected then it is searched for and the cursor highlights the next occurrence of the text. If no text is selected then depending on the passed argument we either search for the last Find search term (“last_search”) or the clipboard (“clipboard”).
find_selected_previous - As above but we search backwards
This package doesn't really add much in the way of new functionality, it just makes available existing functionality under one method or keypress. Previously to search for the last search term you would call the “find_next” method or to search for selected text you would call the “find_under” method. Now you can just call the “find_selected” method and depending on whether text is selected or not the appropriate built-in method is called for you. It's a somewhat trivial change in behaviour but one I found that I missed greatly when migrating from UltraEdit. There is also the added ability to search for whatever is on the clipboard in one keypress.
Important note about key bindings:
If you have SublimeCodeIntel installed it grabs CTRL+F3 by default. If you wish
to override this behaviour you will need to put Find Selected keys in your user
key bindings file. To do this open the default key bindings at
Package settings ->
Find Selected ->
Key Bindings - Default. Copy and paste
these into your user file at
Key Bindings - User ensuring you
add the trailing comma as appropriate.
The easiest way to install is through Package Control.
Once you install Package Control, restart ST3 and bring up the Command Palette (Ctrl+Shift+P on Linux/Windows, Cmd+Shift+P on OS X). Select “Package Control: Install Package”, wait while Package Control fetches the latest package list, then select FindSelected when the list appears. The advantage of using this method is that Package Control will automatically keep FindSelected up to date with the latest version.
Go to the Packages directory (
Browse Packages…). Then clone this
git clone git://github.com/CodeEffect/FindSelected
Downoad a zip of the project (click on the zip icon further up the page) and extract
it into your packages directory (
Default key bindings
find_selected_next - If selected find next occurrence, if not then find
last search term.
find_selected_previous - If selected find prev occurence, if not
then find previous last search term.
find_selected_next - If selected find next occurrence, if not then
find_selected_previous - If selected find prev occurrence,
if not then find previous clipboard.
