No, you aren't missing a setting. That's the way Find and Replace works.
If you dislike this behavior, you should file a Wish Form using the link below to ask Adobe to change it.
If enough folks report the same issue, eventually it will get changed.
I know that this sounds weird, but I think the HTML level view is more "in your face" with the new presentation of Find and Replace. I hardly ever used Find and Replace before because of the awful non-expandable dialog box and the HTML. I must have assumed that the new user interface would be more user friendly, too. As far as the problem with "Contains," this is useful information, even though I almost always check each Find before Replacing.
Thanks, Rick. I think I shall do just that. -_ Carol
