Visual Studio Code – Matching text from large files

Visual Studio Code

I often have to pick matching text from large files.

To do this in Visual Studio Code :

  • Ctrl-Shift-L – selects all occurrences
  • Ctrl-i – selects each line containing that selection
  • Create a new file/tab and copy / paste the details in there
