In emacs I use search all the time to find a point in the file which I want to edit. It would be great to have a code search within the notebook cells that could jump to / move the cursor between matches!
For cells that are open, you can use your browser’s native find-in-page feature. You can also go to safe mode by adding
/safe to the URL to see all of the cells open at once.
That said, we would like to make find-in-page work better, add support for find-and-replace, and make a variety of other editing improvements. Thanks for the feedback!
Awesome, and thanks for the safe-mode tip! I am sure whatever y’all come up with will be amazing.
Just thought I’d add another thought related to searching that I keep wishing for: when you are hovered over the sidebar, typing keys searches the cell names (in the sidebar). Sometimes getting around the notebook can take a while.
Personally, I sometimes accidentally introduce typos in large notebooks when scrolled randomly in the page with the cursor still in a cell. I feel like this might also help protect against that.
