    Default YAFR: Find In Files in Studio

    Please can the "Find In Files" (Control-Shift-F) either:

    First sort the list of files and paths it's going to look through in alphabetical order,

    OR

    sort the array used to populate the Results tree view at the top layer.

    It makes it MUCH easier to find needles in Haystacks.

    Thanks

    PS while you're there, how hard would it be to add a checkbox to "Exclude Comments from searches" ?

    If I'm searching for "showln" I don't want to find
    Code:
     // Showln "foo"  // MWP 2001

    Re. Excluding comments;
    If regex would be supported in the file search, then you can do that.
    Would prefer that.

    Low hanging fruit first!

    Odds are to do this, they will implement regex. But I'm trying to sneak that in Shhh!!!
