OK, "Replace All Scope" was not clear to me that it was "replace all
Why not have "In Selection" as the default when text is selected
(actually i dont like that much, i still think a checkbox is
clearer) ? At least, have some kind of visual cue on the dialog box
that this is the keystroke required... I know that you are going for
keystroke consistency here, but its at the expense of ergonomic comfort.
anyway Ill shut up now that I know how to do it....
