Title: Allow undo during interactive search and replace
Post by: jporkkahtc on July 09, 2018, 02:47:03 pm
During a long interavtive S&R, sometimes I accidentally choose the wrong action (from the yes/no/last/go options).
It would be great if I could "undo" to revisit previous changes.

Ideally in addition to yes/no/last/go, there would be previous/next button to allow arbitrarily moving forward/back thru the matches - and let me change the replacement choice for each one.

You might want to try the "Preview All..." option.  In addition to allowing you to step through each change, file by file, you can cancel any time, and even if you hit "Save All", you can still use Multi-file Undo to revert the changes.
