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 will be selected. After the search, Count Matches will tell you how many matches it found.
If there are no search matches at all, EditPad will briefly flash the Count button's icon to indicate failure. If there are a lot of search matches, counting them all might take a while. The status bar will indicate EditPad's progress.
