Hi,

I there an easy way to use the Search facility (or anything else) to just find all the projects in the workspace matching a name pattern?

I'm currently looking for plugin projects, so 'find plugin' by name might help as well..
I tried several combinations on the Search dialogs -without success.

Also tried setting the filter for Package Explorer- but that seems pretty rigid (only wants filter things *out*, where I want matching entries).

I feel embarrassed to fail on such a simple task - after several years of Eclipse usage.. Confused

BTW, is there some plan to introduce "live filters" into Package/Project Explorer and generally to everywhere with -potentially- a long list? There are good examples like Run Configurations&Preferences dialog, but I think these should be more pervasive.
Long flat lists of anything are pain to browse through.

Thanks for any ideas,
Gergo
