Result message after Find & Replace

Post by Xuanying »

When you use Find & Replace to find all occurrences of a word (or phrase, etc), the message in the lower left corner of the window says, for example, “Found 8 occurrences”.

When you use it to replace all occurrences, it still says “Found 8 occurrences”. I was wondering if it should say “Replaced 8 occurrences”.

G'day, Xuanying et al

You're probably right. To be consistently pedantic, though, the message would have to cater for various possibilities with "Replace & Find", such as "Replaced 1 occurrence, found no other occurrences".
