After using Prepare to Search or pressing Ctrl+F and entering a search term, click the Count button on the Search toolbar or select the Count Matches item in the Search menu to count all search matches. Count Matches starts searching from the beginning just like Find First does. Then it continues searching like Find Next would, until the search fails. None of the search matches are selected. After the search, Count Matches pops up a message box to tell you how many matches it found.
If there are no search matches at all, EditPad briefly flashes the Count button’s icon to indicate failure. If there are a lot of search matches, counting them all might take a while. A progress meter will pop up to indicate EditPad’s progress after a second or two.
