Find in Path: How to just show results in the Find Window

I'm testing out PHPStorm 2017.2, and when using Find in Path (right-click folder then Find), it shows results in the pop-up window when I only want it to show in the docked window at the bottom from previous versions (it shows when you click Open in Find Window from the Find pop-up).

Partly the reason for this is the way it organizes the results makes more sense for our projects, and I don't have to sit and wait for it to grind showing results in way that isn't as useful.

I'm not seeing an option anywhere to either disable searching in the Find pop-up, or have hitting Enter open the Find Window like before.

Hi there,

>it shows results in the pop-up window when I only want it to show in the docked window at the bottom from previous versions

1) It was doing the same before.. just the results were shown in separate "Preview" tab

2) Just use "Ctrl+Enter" (shortcut for "Open in Find Window" button) instead of previously used "Enter"

You may revert to the old style if so desired.

Yea! Now every time I upgrade major versions I need to open up idea.properties and set:

idea.case.sensitive.fs=true
ide.find.as.popup=false

Can we go for a hat trick?

Why every time?

It can be done only once ... and idea.properties file will survive the upgrade (as it will be stored in IDE settings folder) -- use "Help | Edit Custom Properties..." for that.

Coming super late to this thread, but in the newest version (2018.1) I have some issues

I added ide.find.as.popup=false in idea.properties

Before if I wanted to search for some selected some text I used to select text ->press Ctrl+shift+F -> find window shows up(no longer works) -> click ESC -> windows closed (now doesn't)->click Enter -> searches (still works)

Part 2 press Ctrl+shift+F -> type text -> press Enter button (still ok), click ESC (no longer works).

Any idea about this issue?

Sounds like one of the recent issues with focus in "find in path" window: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-184988
