"Replace" without "Find next"



  • Is it possible to perform a “search/replace” operation and have the cursor stopped at the location of the replaced text? i.e. do not automatically go and do a “find next” operation.
    Thanks.

    That is currently (where currently = up to and including 7.9.5) not possible.

    The workaround is to let it go “too far” and then press Ctrl+z and then Ctrl+Shift+z.
    This will “undo” the most recent replacement (the one you wanted to stop at) and then “redo” the replacement (and leave the caret at the location of the replacement).
