Eclipse: how to open a search-found file in a new editor tab?


April 2019


340 time


I constantly use Eclipse's find-in-file feature this way:

Search->File->File Search tab.

When I get a list of files containing my search string, these files shows in the bottom pane. When I click, in the bottom pane, the line in a file that contains the search string, the file is always opened in the same file editor tab, and so the file I opened earlier that contains the search string is gone. I am hoping to open several files at the same time that contain the search string.

Thanks for help!

On the Search preference page, uncheck the box for Reuse editors to show matches.
