Entrian Source Search 1.7.15: Saved tabs and history, trim leading whitespace, lots of bugfixes

Saturday, May 19th, 2018 by

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Source Search 1.7.15, with these fixes and features:

  • Your tabs, search history, etc. are now saved and restored between sessions.  Thanks, Boris.
  • You can now choose to trim any leading whitespace from the lines in the results list.  Thanks, Ernie.
  • You can once again use a UNC path as an index root.  Thanks, Allen and Brady.
  • When using a High DPI display mode, Source Search dialogs containing multiline text boxes no longer suffers from layout glitches.  Thanks, Yash.
  • Searching using a wildcard in a filename, eg. [file:jquery.*.js] now returns all the results, rather than missing out a seemingly random subset of them.  Thanks, Jools.
  • Wildcards in filename filters now behave more as you’d expect: prefixed wildcards (eg. j*) in filenames can now match more than one token rather than just one, so [file:j*.js] matches jquery-ui.min.js as well as jquery.js.  Thanks, Jools.
  • After a crash disables Source Search, triggering it again now asks whether you want to re-enable it, rather then telling you to use the “More / Enable…” command to do so.  The problem with old message was that if the Source Search window wasn’t visible, there was no way to get to that “”More / Enable…” command.  Thanks, Walter.
  • When you resize the Visual Studio window during a search, so that the Search box changes size, the spinner now maintains its position at the right-hand end of the search box.  Thanks, Jools.
  • The ‘Show only filename/folder’ and ‘Don’t show filename/folder’ commands now work properly with filenames and folders that contain spaces.  Thanks, Avraham.
  • In C-family languages, if you have source file with an unclosed string, the syntax highlighting now recovers rather than highligting the whole of the rest of the file as a string.
  • Using a text filter (This +That, meaing ‘search for This in files containing That’) for an index with a directory mapping now works properly.  Thanks, Huy.
  • In the dark theme, the results list header now has visible separators between the columns.  Thanks, Jools.
  • Source Search no longer fails on startup when the ANSI codepage is set to UTF-8.  Thanks, Justin.
  • Single tokens that are many hundreds of characters long no longer cause rendering glitches in the autocomplete dropdown.  Thanks, Sam.
  • Alt+= on a Lisp symbol in a .dc or .dcx file now searches for the whole symbol.  Thanks, Jonathan.
  • The Source Search installer no longer has a dependency on MSVCP140.dll, which isn’t present on all developer PCs.  Thanks, Derrick.

You can download this new release from the download page or from the Visual Studio Marketplace.

    any plans on make a plugin for Jetbrains Rider?
    since I see there is a console mode.

  2. Richie Hindle Says:

    No immediate plans I’m afraid, no, but thanks for the suggestion!

  3. Chris Hynes Says:

    How about a plugin for VS Code? :-P

  4. Richie Hindle Says:

    Hi Chris,

    That’s on the long-term radar, but as you can imagine it’s not a small job!

  5. Chris Hynes Says:

    Yes, I can imagine! I have been contemplating using VS Code more because VS proper is often slow when working with Razor pages.

    But TBH I am addicted to Alt + = to find stuff instantly and I can’t make the switch without having it ;-)

    Hi, we use Entrian in the company I work, is there a way to search in the Entrian results as we do in the default VS Find? if not, is it planned to happen in the future? Thank

    Hi Fernando,

    Thanks for the suggestion! Yes, that’s planned for a future release, but I can’t promise a date for it.
