Bug when doing replace in selected text

May 31, 2012 12:49 AM


Do this:

1) open a file;

2) select some text;

3) press CTRL-F to bring up the ColdFusion Search;

4) go through the steps of replacing some string with another;

5) at the end of that, we’re back at the main edit screen, with the selected text still selected;

6) press CTRL-F again

7) go to change another thing within the selected text;

8) have your blood run cold and sweat stand out on your brow because you just notice CFB has changed the search scope from "Current Document" to "Workspace", and you’re currently doing that replacement in your entire workspace.



Is there any reason why this is not a bug, before I raise it as such?

    In my 1 week evaluation of CFB 2 (update 1), I noticed this happen a couple times, but I couldn't put my finger on exactly how or why. It did happen once when I tried to do a local search/replace. This is yet another example of why I would like to turn off ColdFusion Search and enable the built in Eclipse search.


    I decided to wait until Adobe fixes the search before I purchase CFB 2 (or 3). I'm using CFB 1, which uses the built in Eclipse search. Much better for my workflow... can't wait until they get it right.
