java – Find usage of id not working in Android Studio on Windows-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I selected an id in XML, mouse right click, find Usage shows no occurrence of id even Id exist in java file. And if i do the same in Mac its finding it.

So is there any cache issue or something else ?

How to solve:

To fix the autocomplete go to:

File -> Invalidate Caches -> Restart -> Click at Invalidate and Restart

Remove that shortcut in your GEFORCE EXPERIENCE

I was having the same problem and unfortunately @josedlujan’s answer does not solve the problem.

In my case I was not finding anything since I had “File name Filter” checked and I was just looking in build.gradle.

2. Just filter to *.java or whatever type of file you want
