I could not find any way to do this. I use search all the time and would really appreciate having this functionality. I would ideally like Ctrl-Shift-F to initiate this.

This is fairly high on the features TODO list.

the lack of this feature is currently a deal-breaker, when looking at long logs files, which pushes me to use some-other terminal emulator

@ChicK00o thanks. It is useful for me to have an idea as to what people need the most just so that I can figure out some reasonable priorities.

Ditto, this is a big deal for me as well.

"Search in text" is pretty high on the TODO list now. I'm trying to clear out these kinds of deal-breakers. See #30

@WillPlatnick

Here is a quick list of ways to support this project:

  • fixing bugs
  • improving docs
  • promoting Extraterm
  • blogging about how you use is and the unique features, explaining interesting workflows.
  • Good old fashioned programming is useful too.
  • Answering questions which appear as issues on GitHub is directly useful. It saves me time.
  • Clearly reporting bugs.
  • Giving feedback about which (missing) features you feel are important and also which ones are not important. I find it hard to prioritise features at times. For example. does anyone care about cursor shapes?
  • General constructive and "actionable" criticism. (macOS specific stuff is especially useful because that is a platform I don't regularly use.)
  • Packaging and distribution for the different channels people use for installing software. i.e. Linux distro packages, Chocolately on Windows, homebrew on mac, etc.

@WillPlatnick I'm not set up to accept donations. An exception can always be made if enough zeros are involved. ;-)

I also can't wait for this feature :) @sedwards2009 Do you have an estimate on when the release involving this feature is going to be?

@kdziadowiec Since the last release I've spent the time improving the internal structure of the app and specifically introducing a 'command' concept. This stuff is exposed in the Extensions API which is growing like a fetus inside Extraterm. :-) This will allow me to implement Find correctly(as an extension) in a way which won't need to changed in the future and won't cause the code base to become a mess. It will also allow other functionality to be created much easier, and once the Extension API is born, then others will be able to build on that foundation work.

That said, I am now directly working on Find.
