Crippled search (CTRL+F) in MVC text editor


Recommended Posts


Unable to find matching text with the browsers built-in search function (CTRL+F) when viewing a large config file like this in the new MVC text editor: https://gyazo.com/ca6ebd7c4c1a6112d7202af3c352cfb0

The search tool (CTRL+F) will only be able to find matching text based on what it is seeing on screen. It will not match text further down or up in the file, that only is visible when scrolling.

The issue re-produced:

Same behaviour on major browsers like Chrome and Firefox.

Temp workaround:

Copy the contents to a local notepad and search there.

Suggested fix:

If this is due to limitations in the browsers, maybe adding a search field to the MVC text editor would be a good solution.
