Ticket #1571 (confirmed New Feature)
Suggestion for Find / Replace dialog of v2.5
|Reported by:||MarkWB||Owned by:|
Usefulness of the "Replace" tab of the Find/Replace dialog is greatly diminished without a "Find Next" button. To be selective about search and replace requires both tabs with their separate search fields. (You must enter what you're looking for twice)
Perhaps I'm missing something, but I think the find / replace tabs could be combined in a dialog with no tabs while being more useful. If the "Find Next" button was added to the replace tab, it could concurrently serve all Find / Replace purpose as a simpler, more intuitive and easier to use tab-less dialog. (e.g. Like the "Edit | Replace..." dialog of Notepad.)
Up / down radio buttons could also have significant value if this dialog must be modal, unlike being modeless with Notepad. (or like an always on top floating dialog of the kind I see targeted for v2.6)
BTW: Replace tab isn't selected (at least in IE7) on pressing the 'Replace' toolbar button, but the above suggestion would make this irrelevant.
