Find in Files does not work if the File Mask box is left empty.
In that case it says "Search completed - 0 matches"
If I fill in '*.cs' in the file mask, it works as expected.

I also experience this issue. It works ok if "Entire Solution" is selected, but not invidivual projects.

@Dermot: MD 2.8 has a known bug that says "No project option" when searching on the "Current Project" scope. You can work around it by searching the project's directory instead. It's fixed in master and the fix will be in 2.8.1.

I think it's fixed - but need to verify it.
Comment 4 Jeffrey Stedfast 2011-12-19 17:51:51 UTC
