Search IntelliJ Shelf


Hi, does anyone know if there is a way of searching the shelf in IntelliJ for a file or contents?

My workaround is to grep files in the shelf directory.  Just checking if anyone knows a more direct way.

Thanks, /dave.


Hello Deasy Dave

If you would like to search for a file in Shelf you can just go to Commit -> Switch to Shelf tab and start typing. Shelf supports quick search, so once you start typing it will output files.

You can jump between matches by pressing arrow keys.
And when you do it, those shelf trees that contain a match will be expanded.


Thanks Ruslan.  That's interesting - didn't realize that existed.

This searches shelf names / file names.

It searches what is displayed in the Shelf tab, so it matches titles of shelves, plus files names for any shelved bundle that is expanded - by substring / case insensitive.

So workaround to search the entire shelf is to expand all contents on the shelf - to expose all file names.

It highlights all matches, no 'next match'.

Looks like I am back to grep in shelf directory if I want to search file contents, but usually file name is enough.

Thanks again, /Dave.
