I use the 'Find in Files' frequently to do string searches when the tagging isn't sufficient.  However, I've started coming across cases where tags should exist and symbol highlighting state there is no global variable, yet when going to definition, it finds it.

Attached is a sample of a C file that references the functions in a table and includes an include file that provides the simple typedefs and function extern.  In another directory there is another C file that provides the stubs of the functions (and also includes the same include files).   Two C files, two H files.   

When trying to 'Find in Files' the search of "func1" with no preference to case, whole word, etc. and look in Workspace, Project, whatever along with * or *.c;*.h or any other combination, the search results always come back as not found.  Yet, it is referenced in 1 C file and H file and defined in the other C file.

I've tried with and without wildcards in the project file and this appears to have no bearing.

Tested both 19.1.1 and 19.2.RC4.

Wouldn't you know it, the search is working  (sort of), but the symbol coloring is still off.
