I'm using eclipse version 4.14.0, build id 20191212-1212 on my linux computer.
Previously i was using workbench that was based on eclipse (i was working on vxWorks).
I noticed a difference in the search window layout. In workbench i could choose to see the results as a list view, but if i had more then one match in a file i could open this line to see the results ( i had a + sign in the beginning of the line).
In this version of eclipse i don't have the + sign in the line when i'm in list view, only when i'm in tree view. But tree view is not comfortable because the tree is too deep.
In the picture attached, you can see i have 12 matches in one of the files but i can't open it to see the results. The only way is to do Ctrl+F in the file.
It there another way to see all results in list view???

How the results are shown will vary depending on which tab of the Search dialog you used. Were they the same?

I don't undestand what you mean. There are tabs in the search dialog?

Yes. If you do Search->Search..., you get a dialog with different ways to search. How are you invoking your search in both places?

Im searching via File search, but the output is the same even if you use C/C++ search.
The output window is identical for all types of search.

Once you've done a search, the view menu (which was a little triangle near the upper right of the view area, but is now a vertical ...), has the option to "Show as List" or "Show as Tree". That must be what you're looking for...

I'm talking about "Show as List" option. If you will look at the pics i attached, you can see a difference.
In the regular eclipse there is no "+" sign near the line of the file, meaning it only writes the number of matches at this specific file.
Once you enter the file you need to search again inside it with Ctrl+F to find all the instances of the string you're looking for.
In the other pic i attached, from workbench, you can see that all the instances of the string are displayed under the line of the file (once you click on the arrow beside it).
Hope this explanation is more clear now.
