    Hello sky,

    This is the correct behavior if you select multiple lines. In this case, EmEditor will set the In the Selection Only option instead.


    You can use “Set Word to Find/Replace” commands to pick up a selection, no matter if it’s multi-line.

    @Yutaka ,

    ** But these 2 commands do not work as expected when “Find/Replace” dialog is open:
    In “Find/Replace” dialog, the current string does not change correspondingly, though the picked string is already at the top of the history dropdown.

    + Suggestion 1:
    Make these 2 commands also work for “Find/Replace in Files” dialog.

    + Suggestion 2:
    Add “selection” in the descriptions for these 2 commands:
    Sets the current word (or selection) as the find/replace string.
