Well I opened a support ticket from my support page when I started this. Unfortunately your response doesn't make it seem like this will ever get fixed. Another person posted same exact problem above.
It was only reported by you on the 11th and today is the 15th. You have to give people time to look into issues. Even if it was fixed, it would take weeks (at a minimum) of testing before it would be release.
Don't make me change html editors because you can't fix one little problem like this - the program has great features that let you edit multiple files at the same time - except it won't save your work & you end up having to save each file individually. This is not acceptable on a big site.
If I use Find & Replace to change multiple pages, then click Save All - only one page is saved.
If I make manual changes to multiple pages, then click Save All - all the pages are saved.
This Find & Replace issue occurs whether or not I'm using an admin account on my windows pc.
I opened one of the html folders locally, opened 10 files.
At the beginning of each <body> I wrote the letters æøå (yes, I'm from Norway and we have those letters).
Then clicked on Save all, and they all got saved WITH those weird letters.
Then I clicked on Edit - Replace, chose find æøå, and replace with xyz.
I chose All open documents, and then hit Replace all.
Both before and after Save all, I now had xyz at the beginning of each document.
I opened Edit - Replace once more, chose find xyz and left Replace empty.
Again All open documents and replace all.
Checked before and after Save all: All but two files were 'clean'. They were in the middle of the 10 files.
I thought I might have done something differently in those two documents, so I repeated the whole process with 1o new files, this time leaving a blank before or after æøå.
Result: All the files were 'clean'.
I even repeated it yet another time, again with 10 different files: The last file of the 10 still had the xyz when I was done.
So, It can't have anything to do with the Save all, because the files were the same both saved and unsaved. It must be some little quirk in the replace process, maybe only when leaving the replace field empty. But I have used this loads of times 'for real', and I have never actually had problems. But if the expression you want to replace includes a line break (in the file, not in the search term), it is not found, and of course, if a file has been compressed and quotes around an expression removed, it will not be found if the 'Find' has those quotes included.
1) If you use 'Search & Replace' and have it 'Look in Folder' instead of using 'All Open Documents' then search&replace works properly.
2) If you use 'Search & Replace' on 'All Open Documents', just click on the tab of each changed file - then 'Save All' works properly. So click on each one's tab - then use Save All. No need to save each file individually if you do it this way.
They do need to fix this - probably just missing one line of code somewhere deep.
