That would be correct, the data transfer error occurred on entering 
the filename search data, selecting the files to be loaded, and has 
nothing to do with the subsequent operations on those files.

The CtrlTabs are replaced as separate Search & Replace actions which 
do work here, but the above error stopped one from getting to the 
Search & Replace in the manner Fred recommended.

I have had another look and the changes are being made here.

This is the original :-


and after the Search & Replace


!Locate, or the Mk1 eyeballs, can be used to verify that "CtrlTab" no 
longer exists in the Mode directories, and there are two of these, 
UserPrefs and Defaults, which can very easily be found from the new 
iconbar menu structure.
