Description NukemBy 2015-04-22 13:55:24 UTC
Rather frequently I need to get summary of search results in Current File only - the one which is displayed for "Edit -> Find in Projects". The closest currently available functionality is scope="Open Documents", but it ...
- is not handy when I have 50 other files open (which actually just pollute the result).
- it applies "file name pattern" filter, which i need to reset to '*' between search.

Adding scope="Current file" (which should not use value in "File Name Patterns") will greately simplify that use-case.

Another workaround is Ctrl+Shift+F in editor and scope Selection. But the value of "File Name Patterns" is still used.
