"Find" & "Find in path" not working in 2018.2

Since upgrading to 2018.2 the text input of the "find" and "find in path" features no longer allow me to type in them.

  • When pressing "Ctrl+F" in the editor, the find bar is displayed but I am unable to type in the box. The cursor focus remains in the editor.
  • When pressing "Ctrl+Shift+F" in the editor, the find in path dialog opens but I am unable to type in the search box.

Having read other similar posts, I have tried uninstalling the Material UI Theme I was using and the Git integration plugin but neither of these made any difference to the problem.

Similarly with Ctrl+Shift+F  ("Find in path"), I can type in the search box, but randomly while typing, the focus returns to the underlying editor, even though the search window remains on top.  This causes unexpected text changes in the editor, and requires a mouse click in the search box to regain focus to continue typing the search text.

To follow up my 2018-08-07 post, I found that an older plugin "TabStack" seemed to cause the problem.  I had newly-installed IDEA, and after a while I remembered the TabStack plugin and installed it.  It took me a few days to realize the "Find in path" bad behavior started at that point.  Removing the TabStack plugin caused "Find in path" to function normally again.
@Milos, I don't have the "Dracula" theme (sounds scary ;-) ), but I've successfully used "Darcula" for a long time without the "Find" field issues.  Currently using 2018.2.2 .

Although not a WebStorm user, I have this same problem with IntelliJ 2018.2.3 and, like @Milos, changing the theme from Dracula back to IntelliJ solved it (although I do not like the bright IntelliJ theme). What did help make it clear there was a problem, was clicking on "Help -> Tail Log in Console".

I had to disable CSS support plugin to fix 'Find in path'. However if I enable this plugin back 'Find in path' stop working correctly.

CSS support is a bundled plugin that shouldn't normally affect Find in Path in any way. Please can you elaborate on your issue?
