In-place Replace in IntelliJ IDEA 10.5April 29th, 2011 by andrey zaytsev
Long time ago IntelliJ IDEA got a face-lift for Find functionality where the old Find dialog was replaced with the editor’s toolbar. Now we’re introducing a similar, more comfortable and less modal Replace.
A planned killer is that when you are doing a regular expression replace you can see the result preview in a tooltip, as shown on the screenshot above.
So, try it in a latest IntelliJ IDEA 10.5 EAP and let us know how it works for you.
