Block Editor : a way to jump on given pattern?

Hi Koders !

I have many professional applications having tons of blocks ; even on a 34 inch screen and low scaling of characters, I need to scroll up and down, right to left, to find some parts of the code.

Everything is well stored ; however it take time to locate some part of the code (for example : variables, or procedure, or component)

Using the regular CTRL+F in the browser, it just highlight the pattern but it is not able to jump to the involved part of the code, each after other.

I was testing many Chrome extensions but more or less they have the same behavior.

So, I was wondering about a feature able to locate and jump inside all the blocks to find a given pattern ; a bit like these buttons at bottom left to locate and jump to errors.

Thank you very much,
Eric

Hi,

I am always curious if user have “a ton of blocks” how many blocks are we talking about.

When i have a large number of blocks i always zoom out of the blocks and then zoom in on the part i need.

Ok @Peter, you got another method. I always have the same zoom, but my method is, that I clean up all my blocks in one row, then scroll down or up.

But there order is changed when we clean up blocks
Then How to deal with that problem It will make it more difficult to find out a code/block

Hi Peter…

tons of blocks :slight_smile:

and believe me, it is not about code optimization ; all reusable code is in functions and there is no redundancy

We need something like this :

It’s not a bad idea. It would also be good if you could create folders, name them, and put in the blocks you need.
Instead of using many screens, I use vertical arrangements that I show or hide. If you could create folders, you could create a folder for each screen and put the code inside. And you’d be using one screen.
