Search with "Append to editor window" did not add anything to Output Window. The "Search Results" window did show multiple items found.
Doing a copy of the whole "Search Results" window copied the whole file being search rather then only the results in the "Search Results" window.

Please post a picture of the Find and Replace tool window with the option settings.

Also, how are you "Doing a copy" (i.e key press or some other means?). Are you wanting to copy only the matches and not the File lines?

I think I misunderstood the way the options work. I thought the "Append to editor window" would put the output in the "Output Window'. I did not notice that it appended to the current "Search Results" window.

I could not reproduce the second issue of copying the "Search Results" window.
