> As a long-time TextMate user I've really been enjoying using the new TextMate alpha. There is one feature from 1.5 that I sorely miss -- or at least, can't see how to replicate in v2.
> I've checked the FAQ and mailing list but can't see if this was covered before. Apologies if it has been.
> I often use quite complex regexes on large files and I want to see what result my replace has had before moving on to the next match.
> In v1.5 you did this by clicking "Replace" -- this enabled you to see the result of your substitution (and back out of it if needed). You then clicked "Find" to move to the next match, and so on.
> Now however I only see a "Replace and Find" which means I have to remember the line number of the replace then manually scroll back to see if my regex did what I expected (or not).
> Is there a new way of doing this? If so, it's not obvious to me.
> Many thanks,
