In 10.0.4 I seem to have lost the ability to search a selection. If I select a block of text and open the search window, ‘In the selection only’ is greyed out and I can’t select it.

The selection search is not supported in EmEditor in any versions. You can only replace within a selection.

Sorry, I did mean Replace.
I have a block of text selected, click on the Replace icon so the Replace window opens – ‘In the selection only’ is greyed out and I can’t select it.
It’s a facility which I use a lot and it has gone missing in the latest version.

In my case the problem has a somewhat different angle.
When I check ‘In the selection only’, ‘Find Next’ and ‘Replace’ buttons turn inactive.October 7, 2010 at 3:21 pm #9034
I don’t know if it is a new functionality in 10.0.4 but when you uncheck the ‘Search All Open Documents’ checkbox, it will enable the ‘In the Selection Only’ checkbox again.October 7, 2010 at 3:46 pm #9035
As you might already notice, “Search All Open Documents” cannot be used with “In the Selection Only” together.
Likewise, “Find Next” or “Replace” buttons are disabled when “In the Selection Only” is checked.
Please let me know if you have further questions.
