    hello

    does EmEditor lacks the ability to find all words containing a string and highlight/select them all, or I am missing something?

    in the search box, there is a ‘find up’, a ‘find down’, but not a ‘find all’ button

    thanks

    How would you like to see the result of ‘find all words’?

    What I often do is to close the ‘Find’ dialog box. You will find all matched items highlighted. You can then use ‘Find Next Word’ or ‘Find Previous Word’ to navigate within the document.

    Another way is to use the ‘Find in Files’ to see all matched lines. It will search all files in specified directory though. I wish it has a easier way to saerch within the current document only.

    I am not sure what you really want to do, but did you try
    Macro that extracts lines that contain the specified string?

    click “Search” -> “Find…”

    in the “Find” window mark “Use regular expressions”
    type in “Find:” field
    w*(some_string)w*

    replace “some_string” with whatever you whant to.

    click “Find down” button.
