expert: I'm new to using Eclipse. I want to know how I can search for a word in every file in a project (or workspace)? In the search popup I have selected the File Search tab, In Containing text field - I entered the word or text that I am searching for, Scope = Workspace , File name patterns= *.java
I get error pop "File Search encounted a problem" ? .
