MPS 2019.1 Help

Search for a target by name

MPS makes it possible to look for any item of the source code, databases, actions, elements of the user interface, and so on in a single action.

Search everywhere

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Click the Search everywhere button search_everywhere in the upper-right corner of the MPS window.

    • Double-press Shift

  2. In the popup that opens, start typing the search string, to narrow down the suggestion list.

    The search string can be a name of a symbol or action, an option, or an abbreviation of an action.

  3. Select the desired target from the suggestion list. The further behavior depends on the search target. MPS may silently navigate to the desired source code, show the desired setting, or a popup list of Find Action.

    You can also just press the desired shortcut, to switch from the Search everywhere popup to any other navigation and search action: for example, press Ctrl+N to jump to the selected class, or Ctrl+Alt+S to show the corresponding option in the Settings dialog.

Configure search everywhere scopes

  1. In the Search Everywhere dialog, click the Filter icon (The Filter icon).

  2. Turn on or off the desired search scopes:
