In IntelliJ 9 and earlier, search and replace (ctrl+r) was a dialog. Now, instead, it's a bar at the top of the document.
I use vertical split documents. Due to that, some options of the replace bar are outside of the area where intellij can draw it, the selection only option and the very useful "preserve case" option.
The dialog worked much better for me, now it is more annoying. KDE has also replaced nice search dialogs with such crippled bars in its text editors. I don't get this. Why is this bar considered better? It works less well for me.
IntelliJ had a perfectly good working search and replace dialog, why was it ruined like this?
I need some *room* to give my search and replace command, not some tiny half-rendered area!
(And yes, I know ctrl+shift+r still brings up a dialog.)
