Description brettryan 2016-05-31 05:20:41 UTC
Steps to Reproduce

- Perform a search (CMD+F)
- Enable searching for regular expressions *
- Turn case sensitivity off *
- Shut down the IDE
- Start the IDE
- Perform a search

Expected Behaviour

IDE should remember search/replace settings.

Actual Behaviour

Search settings are not persisted and default back to non-regular expression and case sensitive search.

This is a regression as it used to work in 8.0 (may have been 7.x).

* NOTE: Do NOT use the default keyboard shortcuts, on a OS X these are shortcuts for the copyright symbol © and ç.

Reproducible, I am sorry, I will look at this.
Comment 2 brettryan 2017-01-22 21:48:19 UTC
While search is persistent, replace settings aren't.

I was sure I mentioned this but I wonder if it was another but report :-\
