I found a macro that does it in the Library section: “Title: Macro that extracts lines that contain the specified string”. Does exactly what I want. Its reverse is also available (show non-matching lines).
I tried it, but still no luck. I even tried it on a blank line which had nothing to select and it still reverted to the last thing I previously searched for. I can’t clear the search history either. I have tried every combination I can think of and it still insists on plugging a search string in.
Maybe I wasn’t clear – I don’t want the editor to reuse the previously used search string – I want the find box completely empty.
It doesn’t work for me. I select Custom when there is nothing in the Find box, then set “Save as Default”. I exit, then try Find again and yet again I get the word at the cursor. This is really puzzling and is the only thing I don’t like about this editor. In decades of programming, I have NEVER wanted to search for the word at the cursor. If I could disable this permanently, I would.
I don’t see that check box in my copy of EmEditor (10.0.1).
