Description lkaratzas 2006-09-08 16:53:08 UTC
When you do a Replace All, the program takes you to the place where the last
instance of the replaced string was found. There is little use in this. It would
be much more useful if the insertion point did not move at all, i.e. it remained
at the point which you are actually editing. The user might also be given an
option on this, although I would personally see it as a rather unnecessary

Confirming with m180 on Win XP.
Moving insertion point after "Replace All" is counterintuitive and 
counterproductive (as the user has to search back, wasting time). Competitors 
do not do this.

I would suggest changing priority to "P3", because "P2" is way too high.

SBA->lkaratzas: Please make up a more "telling" summary next time. People who
have to cross-read many issues or do a query based on summary strings will
appreciate it.

Thank you for your comptrehension

was desigend times ago.
