Find in Files

Editor Basics > Find in Files

The Find in Files dialog supports multiple concurrent searches. When you select a result, a preview window displays and stays on top so you can easily compare other results.

Note: This topic focuses on information that may be unfamiliar to you. It does not include all step and field descriptions.

To find in files

  1. Select Search | Find in files.
  2. Enter the text you want to find in the Search for field.
  3. Enter the types of files you want to find in the File mask box. For example, *.* searches for all files and *.txt searches for all text files. You can search for multiple file types and separate them with a semicolon, such as *.sql;*.txt (searches for all .sql and .txt files).

  4. Select options in the Find in Files toolbar to include additional search criteria, such as searching sub-folders and using regular expressions.
  5. Click .
  6. Double-click a file in the results to preview it. The preview window stays on top so you can easily compare other results.

 

Move Between Editor Tabs

  • Click the tab you want to open.
  • Press ALT+PageUp or ALT+PageDown to cycle through them.
  • If you have opened them using the CTRL+Click functionality within the Editor, click the navigation buttons in the Editor toolbar and select either scroll forward and back through them in the order they were opened, or select from a drop-down order.

Automatically Back Up the Editor

Editor Basics > Automatically Back Up the Editor

You can have Toad automatically create backups of your Editor files using a temporary filename. If Toad closes abnormally, you are prompted to recover or discard backups when you next open Toad. Auto backup is automatically enabled, with a backup interval of every 3 minutes.

See Editor Behavior Options in the online help for more information.

You can also use this feature to recover documents manually.

To recover documents from the menu

Select File | Recover Documents.
