This topic gets beaten to death here, but it's such an annoying CF Builder function.
Here's my rant. Maybe someone can give some insight.
If focused on a page Ctrl-F brings up a search within the page. I have gotten used to the quirks doing this, so I won't discuss that here.
If focused in the Navigator pane Ctrl-F brings up a multi-file dialog. Here is what I typically do:
Projects: Select the project I want to update
File extensions: I select "CFM and CFC only" which shows as *.cfm, *.cfml, *.cfc
Replace: with something else
I click the Replace All button. When it works, it works well. However it often will start scanning ALL files. I see it hitting jpg, cvs, js, and every other type of file. This could take a good ten minutes or more on some of my bigger sites. I click the "Cancel" button, but it just keeps going. So I give it the three finger salute and end the program. Typically, after starting up fresh, it will work properly, scanning only the CF files.
If there is a work-around, please let me know. I think it might be something like close all open files and press F5 in the Navigator pane. Or close and reopen CF Builder (not a good option).
Or better yet, in the words of Philip J. Fry: Fix it. Fix it. Fix it. Fix it. Fix it. Fix it. (pause) Fix it. Fix it. Fix it.
