Bug? When I perform a replace all across multiple open documents, this function is consistently missing at least 10% of the replacements it is supposed to make. There seems to be no pattern, just randomly missed documents. A star appears, indicating a file has been edited, when in fact it has not. This is very, very frustrating, as I then have to manually inspect each file for the changes. When I do that, I might just as well have made the changes manually in the first place. I like the editor a lot except for this. (Wish list: I wish it had a built-in basic ColdFusion code inspector that could check to ensure that all <CFIF> tags had closing </CFIF> tags, and vice versa. Just basic stuff like that -- nothing fancy.)

Robert, I don't know if this might be the case here, but the find-replace tool treats something on one line differently from if it is on two lines (e.g. <div class="whatever"> is treated differently from

On the C drive, short strings, all on the same line.

Hi - Here is an example of the string I am attempting to find and replace across multiple open files:

<cfinclude template="../templates/cc_page_header_util.cfm">

<cfinclude template="../templates/cc_page_header.cfm">

It consistently misses the change on around 10% of the open documents (I did click All Open Documents), but creates an asterisk on the tab next to the filename as if it had actually edited the file.

Let me try a few things. I was using the replace feature the other night and was having some anomalies but I thought it was me.:lol:
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.
