Search and Replace keyboard shortcuts

Answered

In the Search-and-Replace Pane, is there a keyboard shortcut that will allow me to invoke the 'Replace All' button?  I thought I'd be able to tab over to it but that doesn't seem to work.

Also, I see that there appear to be keyboard shortcuts to toggle 'Match Case', 'Regex', 'Words', etc -- for instance the 'C' in 'Match Case' is underlined.  However I can't figure out how to toggle those radio buttons with the keyboard.

I'm running OSX if that makes any difference.

You should use mnemonics to activate options by the underlined letter. On Mac mnemonics are activated by Ctrl+Alt+Letter. On Windows that would be Alt+Letter.

Thanks Serge.  That doesn't seem to work on my Mac unfortunately.  It could be an OS issue...

Maybe I could write a plugin that would pop up a menu for me?  What would the extension point be for the Search Pane?

This should work if you are using the bundled Java version. See this comment.
