Replace & Find Next

I would really appreciate a "Replace & Find Next" button in the Find dialog box, so I don't have to keep alternating between the Find button and the Replace button when I am trying to step through replacements in a long script.


For example, BBEdit has this, together with a few other convenient enhancements relative to JSL FInd dialog:

It looks like your image didn't get added correctly. @john_madden, can you edit your post and be sure to use the "Photos" button in the editor to embed your image.

Thanks, Jeff. There you go. The Search pane from my favorite text editor, BBEdit.

Find All pops up a pane with a list of all occurrences of found text by line number, that you can then scroll thru.

Extract creates a new document in which the selected text is concatenated.

Replace & Find does what I originally suggested.

Search in selected text only is also a useful feature. Wrap around is I guess the JMP default.

Thanks, @john_madden. This looks more like a bug since the Find dialog works more like what you want on Windows. We'll take a look at it and see what's up.
