Find and Replace does not work correctly.

Find and Replace does not work correctly.
For example, our data: "item1", "item2", "item3". Find: "item", replace with: "Item". We carry out, but the data does not change!

TextMaker adapts the casing of the replacement term to the term as it appears in the document. To prevent this, activate the option "Case-sensitive".

And then the option "Case-sensitive"? This option is important when searching. How can this option affect replacement? I want to replace the "item" with the "Item"! Open Notepad and repeat what I did. Notepad successfully replaces this. Why can't your application do this?

We do it exactly like in Microsoft Word, because customers asked us to do it this way.

I do not believe you, because these actions in MS Word and MS Excel work successfully. See attached screenshots. Please delve into the essence of the matter! However, TextMaker also does not perform this action correctly, unlike MS Office.

Dear Prog, sorry for the delay. I was able to reproduce the problem you describe in PlanMaker and I'm going to report it to the developers.

You also excuse me. Please do not forget about TextMaker, there is the same problem.
With hope for the best.
