The result of the Find All operation is a multiple selection, which describes all pattern occurrences. Selection Details window may be used to browse results. In addition, message box with a total number of occurrences found is displayed when searching finishes.
If the pattern has not been found in a file, the message box is displayed.
The Find All command fully supports regular expressions.
