Find/replace window

Postby BrianReynolds » Jul 05, 2010 5:29 pm

In most applications, when you choose "find" you can select "find next" from the various options. Screenwriter's "find" feature only finds one instance of the occurring word/phrase and closes the find window. This is a problem if I'm searching for something that occurs several times throughout the document. A more standard find/replace implementation would be more helpful.

Apropos of nothing, it would also be nice to get some kind of official response to these suggestions, even if it's a polite "Go-f***-yourself."

That is an excellent suggestion and has been added to our TODO list.

Suggestions are always welcomed, even if we do not acknowledge them in a timely manner.

Cheers,

Chris, thanks for the response to my wishlist suggestions. The request for acknowledgment was supposed to be funny and I hope you took it that way. Reading it later it sounded pretty snarky. Sorry if I offended. :-)

I also wanted to add that it would be great if the find/replace feature would start checking from the beginning of the document once it reaches the end. i.e. I'm on page 57, I do a search for "history", I click find next find next a couple of times, Screenwriter reaches the last page and pops up a window that says "Reached the end of the document, continue checking from the beginning?"

Thanks again!

No problems. Good suggestions are good suggestions and should be acknowledged. I agree about the circular spell check.
