Hi Ken,

I supplied my workspace to IBM and they were able to reproduce the issue. I was offered a work-around, but it doesn't seem to work that well for me. Maybe it will for you:

"If you navigate in the Preferences to the panel
LPEX Editor > Find Text
an there clear out the saved Find and Replace field values then go and
open a source member (i.e., new edit session) you will find that the
tabbing order is correct and stays correct for the duration of that
session. But as soon as you do a replace then the next edit session
will have the saved replace value and you will have the problem back. "

Hi Ken,

I have a PMR opened about this. But thanks for reminding me, because they weren't able to reproduce this issue and I need to respond to the request...

A brand new workspace works ok. After converting my very basic template 9.0.1 workspace, it does not work ok. If I have to redo my workspace... let me tell you, there's nothing I hate more. Ok, I'm sure there is, but there's a reason why I keep a saved version of it around - it contains all of my tweaks, and there are a lot of them.

Hi,

I have installed RDi 9.1, and I didn't think it was possible, but the Find/Replace has become even more annoying...

On RDi 9.0.1, you highlight a field, and press Ctrl+F to bring up the Find/Change dialog at the bottom of the LPEX Editor. Hint TAB a few times, and you get to the change field...
At least it tabbed in ORDER! <grin>

Now with RDi 9.1, it tabs you through the Change options at the BOTTOM, First?!:
* Case Sensitive
* Whole World
* Regular Expression
* Wrap
* Select Found text
* Restrict search to selection
* Restrict search to columns

Now, I have to hit the TAB key 11-times to get the REPLACE Field?!
It does even tab in the order of the fields on the screen?

I do use some of those options, but very rarely. Once again, I am forced to use my mouse, because the Find/Replace does not work like every other Programmer Editor on the planet.

I guess those who love keyboard shortcuts, and now have to remember a new keyboard shortcut: Alt+P to jump to the "Replace Field"...
<Big Frown>

Is there a place to correct this Tab-Order?!?!?!

And Ctrl + F now longer auto populates the "Find" field with the selected field like it did in RDi 9.0.1. Once again just about every other Programmer editor on the planet does that by default. Heck, even MS Word does that! Heck, Eclipse does that!


PS. It still does not high-light the entire FIND/REPLACE field like every other Editor on the planet. This has driven me crazy since day one. Normally the Find/Replace field is highlight to allow complete change. So you can merely type and replace...

Oh well, I have learn to hit Ctrl + End to high the fields manually myself. Or hit Backspace multiple times...
<Rant Rant>
