When running a find/replace, it is not possible to restrict the range for
replacement.  This is inconvenient because one should be able to select only a
certain column or range in which to run a "replace".  Instead, even if a column
is selected while running the command, it will search through the whole spreadsheet.

this is possible. Select the range you want to search, open the search & replace
dialog, type in your search and replace string, click on the More... Button and
select Current Selection only. Replace All will replace the found occurences in
the selection only.
