Search and Replace, Simple

StrongED has very comprehensive Search and, optionally, replace abilities. There are effectively four different actions

  3. Search and Replace
  4. Advanced Search and Replace a separate page
    Hot Keys for searching
The most frequently used method of searching is the 'interactive search'. This searches for the text as you type it into the Search box, so you only have to type until what you want is found. Interactive Search is invoked by key F4

Repeated presses of F4 will step back through previous search expressions you have used, as will clicking on the Old button.

There is only one list of search expressions, shared between all four searches.

Clicking on the Menu icon beside the writable box will open a list of previous search expressions so you can select the term you require.

The Case button switches case sensitivity on or off.

The Prev and Next buttons cause the Previous or Next occurrence of the search term to be found.

It is very often useful to include a space before and/or after a short search word to avoid the word being picked up as part of a longer word.

List of Found - LoF

This search is similar to interactive - but is not interactive. List of Found search is on key key F2. As with Interactive Search repeated presses of F2 or the Old button will step back through previous search expressions.

You can also press Ctrl-F to list occurences (in the same text) of the word at the caret.
Ctrl-Shift-F will list occurences of the word at the caret in all open texts.

If not searching for the word at the caret, type in your whole search term and press Return - or click on Go.
LoF/img

Clicking on the Menu icon beside the writable box will open a list of previous search expressions so you can select the term you require. The following keys wil also afffect this box:
