Behavior of "Find/Replace in Files"

Post by susannecm » Tue Jan 23, 2018 6:16 pm

I often use "Find/Replace in Files" with the scope "Current DITA map hierarchy".
However, I am often not too happy with the results.
We use conrefs from a file that is not added as a topicref to the DITA map.
Unfortunately, oXygen never finds the search text in the conref file.
I think the conref file should be included in the search.
Is there any chance that this can be changed?

Kind regards,
Susanne Muris
