[Geany-Users] Users Digest, Vol 118, Issue 1

While we are on the topic of searches I have noticed that if the find or replace dialog is already open, highlighting a variable and doing a ctl-f or ctl-h doesn't replace the existing "search for" with the new highlighted value.  This would be a very nice feature for us when doing successive search/replace.

IMO the "Replace" dialog shouldn't have such useful features hidden inside a collapsed expander by default.
