There seems to be a small problem with TextMaker 2010’s search and replace function. I noticed it while editing a MS Word .docx formatted book that I downloaded from the Internet. (BTW, I was quite impressed by how quickly and seemingly perfectly TextMaker 2010 was able to convert the document!).
The document contained extra spaces before paragraph breaks. TM had no trouble eliminating them from the body of the document, but its Search and Replace function didn’t seem to work properly on or within tables. Or perhaps it’s only special formatting it has trouble with? (Aside: The ability to Search and Replace special formatting is very helpful, thanks!)
Take this sample table:

If TextMaker is configured to “Show Unprintable Characters”, you will notice that there is an unnecessary space before each paragraph break. When I place the cursor before search, and run the Search and Replace function...

...and then “click” on the [Search] button, I get the following:
Sample_Table_Replace.png [ 15.45 KiB | Viewed 3169 times ]
You’ll notice that it found the space-PB, but that it’s not offering me the option of executing a single replace: the [Replace] button is grayed-out. Further, if I click on the [Replace all] button, it only replaces the single occurrence highlighted.
Did I do something wrong or did one of your programmers?
