Search dialog opens in java search, not file search. [message #1048274] Wed, 24 April 2013 08:42 Go to next message

There is one behaviour of Eclipse that is annoying. When I press Ctrl-H, it opens the search dialog, but it also switches to the "Java Search" tab. As a result it happens regularily that I search for some text, and I don't find it because it did a "java search" instead.

Most of the time, I do a text search. So I would like ctrl-H to open the search dialog in file search tabl, or in the same tab as it opened last time.

The action for "ctrl-H" is "Open search dialog". Is there a good reason to assume java search is what is wanted?
Is there a setting that can disable this behaviour? Or change the default tab to file search?

For time being, I customise the search dialog to remove the java search tab. But I also need to do a java search sometimes.

Your comments are welcome.

The Search dialog has a new option since 4.3M6, which allows to remember the last used search page, instead of computing the page which matches best.
The option 'Remember last used page' is available via 'Customize...' dialog in the search dialog.
Use to get Eclipse 4.3M6 or later.
