In IDEA 11.0 on Mac OS X, I am doing a search and replace by pressing cmd-r and putting in xXx in the search box and yYy in the replace box, and selecting "preserve case". The next time I want to search and replace, I want to search for xXx1 and replace it with yYy1 (also with preserve case), but when I press cmd-r the boxes are empty so I have to enter the values again (I can select from the drop-down list for both cases, but for the replace values I have to use the mouse). I also have to select "preserve case" again.
In IDEA 7.0.3 on Windows XP, all the values were preserved between invocations, so all I had to do was to press ctrl-r, and tab between the search field and replace fields and edit them slightly. Also, there "preserve case" (which is what I use in 90% of the cases) is shown as a check-box, I didn't have to go into a menu to see how it was set.
Is there a way to get back this functionality in IDEA 11? It may seem like a small thing, but when doing a lot of related search- and replace-operations it makes a difference.
I am using IDEA 11.0 build #IC-111.69 on Mac OS X 10.7.2
