To narrow the search or to show all matches (
By default, the IDE Insight box shows a narrowed match list -- that is, the box lists all categories that contain a matching item, along with the single "best" matching item in each category. You can, however, specify that all matching results are to be displayed, not just a single match.
You can press
Alt+A to toggle between showing all categories (with one "best" match per category) or all matches (which might require you to scroll to find the match you seek).
The Alt+A toggle is useful when you are looking for a term that generates many matches, such as "unit" or "project", or when you have typed only a letter or two into the text box.
Alt+A toggle to control the display of results, as follows:
- To display all matching items within every category that contains a match, press
Alt+Aor click the Show All Matches button.
- To narrow the search and display only the single "best" matching item in all the categories that contain a match, press Alt+A or click the Collapse List button.
