Find and replace text via action
Find and replace text via action does not record OR play as expected
Recording a find and replace operation records the find and replace dialog box twice (shows up in the action twice) and when playing the action, the only thing that happens is the find portions, the replacement text portions are completely ignored.
Note that this only seems to be the case when using "replace all" button in the dialog. Using the "replace" button seems to record and play correctly, even though the list of operations/options shown in the actions pallet is identical for both.
I found a forum post on Adobe forums from 2013 noticing this same problem.
It doesn't work at all, even when using the replace button. All the action does is open up the Find and Replace dialog box. It doesn't find or replace. Broken!
