Replace in Path - no search text entered error


On windows I pressed ctrl + shift + R and provided text to find and replace. Preview shown me that was 16 matches in 2 files.

I clicked Replace All button. IDE freeze for a while and confirmation dialogue appeared.
I clicked Replace button and error message appeared:


It happens every time when I try to use replace in path. The problem has started after last stable update. I didn't find any issue about it in YouTrack, so I'm not sure if it's more global problem.




Hi there,

Please try "File | Invalidate Caches..." and restart IDE if you have not tried it yet.

No better ideas right now from me.


Thanks for tip, however I have tried that.


This happened because of - should be already fixed in the latest PhpStorm 2018.1.2.

What version do you run?


The problem was in v. 2018.1. After upgrading to the latest one, it works fine.
