Replace while text selected no longer "Replaces Within Selection"


Before the latest update, selecting a text and then issuing the Replace command used the selection as the scope where to perform replacement. Now, it uses that selection as the text to search for, even if I selected a whole file's worth of text.

To get IDEA to replace within selection, i have to:

  1. select my text
  2. issue Replace
  3. delete the suggested text to search for
  4. use the mouse to enable "In selection"
  5. go back to the Search For box to type in my search

Is this change intentional? Has this now become the simplest way to search-replace within a selection?
