ok I search for say
eval() in a php project to find leaks.
I get 60 hits. I look at the first result and want to see if this is maybe a security leak. I see
eval() gets called like this
eval($mySpecialVar) I then search for
$mySpecialVar I see it is not security problem. Now I want to check the next entry of the
eval() search result... but it is not there any more. I have now to search again for
eval() from the very very beginning, and figure out where I was with the 60 results....?!?
is there no more clever way to do it?
the open in new tab is grayed out for me
You have to check "Open in new tab" setting. Its location depends on what search you're using - if it is a text find, the setting is under Result Options section:
If you're searching for usages, it is in Edit > Find > Find Usages Settings:
Note that this option is enabled only if you already have some search results displayed. So in your case: you first search for eval(), then before searching for $mySpecialVar you're clicking on "Open in new tab".
Yet another option would be after searching for eval() to pin the search results, so the new search will always be opened in a new tab:
