Hey all,Just found a showstopper bug - if the columns are sorted in any way the system may perform operations on the wrong checkmarked files (marked files mode only). I'll fix and upload this tonight.The bug is in all versions... it's due to using an API column sort which scrambles the index. Argh!
The discount *appears* to be short-lived, but in fact is probably not... They are offering a powerful product at a reasonable price (even without the discount) and with a lifetime licence, though...
The open source GrepWin is the best free/open source find-and-replace tool with an interface I've found.

http://www.regular-expressions.info/ is a very good beginners guide, though watch yourself for all the shameless PowerGrep plugs. Also, if anyone has a nice free regex composer, I'd really like to hear about it.Ehtyar.
rjbull - it's an auto-link to ehtyar's post - the new forum software adds it to quoted posts, rather than duplicating pictures and attachments everytime a post is quoted.

There is a search and replace tool called MultiFind.It is a pretty handy application that places several searches in different tab pages. This can be usefull if you make search/replace in same folders from time to time. MultiFind understands regular expressions, unicode files, and can hide in tray.
At its core, Replace Text is essentially a text search-and-replace program. However, unlike the search-replace functionality of a standard text editor, Replace Text is designed to operate on multiple files at once. And you need not only perform one search-replace operation per file; you can setup a list of operations to perform. If different groups of files need to have different operations performed on them, this is no problem either. You can also specify a backup file for each file processed, just in case the replace operation didn't do exactly what you wanted.
