AS cannot search for contents through a symbolic link

Post by wqweto » 16 Jan 2016, 14:20

`Commands` -> `Find Files and Directories... (Alt+F7)` dialog has `Search file content` option with is supposed to search inside files contents. When there are symbolic links to files in a folder, the command is refusing to search inside contents of the file the symbolic link is pointing to.

Steps to reproduce:
0. Create file `D:\Temp\aaa.txt` with contents `abc`
1. Create a symbolic link to `aaa.txt` in an empty directory like this:

Code: Select all

c:> md D:\Temp\Test
c:> cd /d D:\Temp\Test
c:> mklink aaa.txt D:\Temp\aaa.txt
2. Open `D:\Temp\Test` in AS
3. Press `Alt+F7` and search for all files containing `a`
4. Watch empty results pane
