The recent changes in the serch box seem to have created a new bug.
I have just tried Search-->Search Disk-->Replace in files with no regex
The first document opened with the search term highlighted but the
search box for confirmation had regex active (from my last use), an
empty search field and I could not confirm anything.
I still maintain the former use was the correct one. Search is search
and clip and menu ought to be treated the same. If Don wants a standard
invariant set of search terms and settings it is easy for him to save
them once and restore whereever warranted through a single command.
After all they are not only destroyed for him through clips but equally
every time he uses the menu box for non-standard one off purposes, IMHO
the most common use anyway. On the reverse side I now have to run a huge
and still only partially functional (search term) workaround each and
every time I use a clip find. Plus, as shown above, artificially
splitting the find function into two separate ones creates all kinds of
For me a clip function is an automated way of calling the same standard
menu function and the two uses should stay exchangeable if only for the
sake of trial versus use and one-off versus regular.
