Search & Replace only selected text
Submitted by Antonio Ognio
Description of Problem:
The Search & Replace dialog does not have an option to search and replace only inside the selected portion of text. This feature is really useful in general but specially if you're programming and using a chunk of code as a "template" for some other code.
When you select text and replace text all ocurrences get replaced not only selected text.
I'd expect selected text only to be searched and replaced.
I guess this should have a checkbox on its own title something like "Search current selection only" which should be checked by default if you open the Replace Dialog when you have some portion of text selected.
This is a very common feature in many other text editors. Additional Information:
