When I hit ^H to do replace, word at cursor is in Find box, how to stop?

#1 When I hit ^H to do replace, word at cursor is in Find box, how to stop?

Posted by: therium | Date: 09/15/2017 11:15 | IP: IP Logged

PSPad 5.0.0 (243) (I got a dev version from the author.)

When I hit ^H to do a Replace, the word that my cursor is in is automatically put in the Find box. How do I make this stop? I don't want PSPad to do this.

Thank you! Your support is great!

ps. Wanted to note that I have had no problems with bookmarks disappearing with 5.0.0. I use PSPad extensively and daily.

Hello

Open program settings / Tools
Option you are looking for is in Search section

Second question:
bookmarks are stored in binary file - PSCache.bin
Version 5 has different format version than version 4. When format version is different PSPad delete this file and start new empty one. It means if you use together version 4 and 5, it will delete this file again and again.

Bookmarks are stored in project file too, if you use PSPad projects.

Hi,
You can disable this behaviour in
Pragram Settings: [Direct edit]
find the item:
FindFillUpFind=1
(in the section [Config]) and set the value to 0.
After confirming and saving the settings dialog it shoult work the way you describe (for both - Find as well Search and replace dialog).
I am not sure, whethere there is a setting for this outside of the Direct edit configuration.

Edit: I stay corrected, its indeed in the tools setting section as mentioned above, please disregard this unnecessarilly complicated suggestion.
