Find/Replace throughout open documents

Find/Replace throughout open documents

Postby jamy_za on Mon Jul 04, 2011 1:13 pm

I've been looking around and I can't find this option. Does it exist? If not, would it be possible to add it?

I can tell you that it doesn't exist. If you want to do something like this, there's sort of a workaround: I'd do a Find in Files with <open files> selected as the location. Then use F4 or whatever to cycle through the results, and modify each result. Unlike a normal find (F3), F4 doesn't actually select the result, so you'll need to do something like F4, F3, and then ctrl+v or whatever. You could make a macro, I guess.
