Bug ID: 397343
Summary: Search state lost when switching from one file to
another
Product: kate
Version: 18.04.0
Platform: Other
OS: Linux
Status: UNCONFIRMED
Severity: normal
Priority: NOR
Component: search
Assignee: kwrite-bugs-***@kde.org
Reporter: ***@ralfj.de
Target Milestone: ---

Often, I want to search one string first in one file and then in another, or
replace A by B in two or three files.

Unfortunately, in Kate, when I go from one file to another, not only does it
close the search bar; also when I hope it, it emptied all the fields in there.
That makes it much harder than necessary to work on projects that span multiple
files.

I think when I switch from one file to another, the search/replace bar at the
bottom should stay open, and it should keep its state.

Please enable the 'Search & Replace' plugin. You can also reassign shortcuts to
make Ctrl+F use this as default.

That looks promising, thanks. I don't understand why the default search bar
behaves so strange now. (I think with old kate -- around Kate 4 -- the search
bar still was properly synced between multiple open files.)

There is a big problem with this solution: Now Ctrl-F is entirely broken in
KWrite, because I changed the key bindings in Kate.

Is there a way to keep using the normal search in KWrite?
