Replacement list - human readable copy

Postby DFH » Mon Jan 18, 2016 2:04 am

I just noticed something odd in this simple replace list filter:

Code: Select all

Perl pattern [(<w lemma="strong:H05542">)(.+)(Selah</w>)] with [$2$$1$$3]
   [X] Match case
   [ ] Whole words only
   [ ] Case sensitive replace
   [ ] Prompt on replace
   [ ] Skip prompt if identical
   [ ] First only
   [X] Extract matches
   Maximum text buffer size 4096
   [ ] Maximum match (greedy)
   [ ] Allow comments
   [ ] '.' matches newline
   [X] UTF-8 Support

   [ ] Process longest strings first
   [ ] Simultaneous search
Why on earth is the Extract matches box ticked when the dialog has no such option?

Best regards,

Because the search list filter inherits from the search filter, when the filter loads it uses the last setting of the extract filter.

Thanks - we'll turn it off.
