Very useful, incremental replace would greatly help Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I use this plugin to replace part of text in web based editors (such as etherpad, or yahoo mail). In some editors, such as google docs, the replace action is not detected by the editor. The undo works fine. The replace also works if there are multiple input fields (e.g. yahoo mail)
I'm mostly lacking the partial substitution. It might be difficult to implement because it would require user interaction, and may require to scroll the text. A useful alternative could be to replace only within the current text selection. Combined with the built-in search feature and "highlight all", this could be a good compromise to get the incremental replace feature.
Many thanks anyway for this very useful plugin!
