### Stop search (& replace) at current cursor position

Hello,

does anyone know if TexmakerX can remember the current cursor position wheren starting a search (which actually is the position in the document where the search started) so that after an entire document and the relevant term was searched & replaced, that it won't start over again?
There is a dialogue after the search
8 out of 8 hits replaced. Should the replace be repeated from the beginning of the document?
(I roughly translated the German dialogue into English, sorry if there are mistakes), but in TXC, the editor remembers where the search & replace was started and even if this dialogue pops up, it'll stop at the posistion where the first term was found & replaced so there are no double entries. Double entries like this often happen when performing search & replaces queues like
\begin{itemize}

and
\begin{itemize}\setlength{\itemsep}{-3pt}

I think you found a bug and I will change that in the next version. (or does anyone here has an example, where the current behavior is more useful?)

Meanwhile, you could only disable the cursor checkbox, then replace all will replace every line only once.

To be honest, I haven't really figured it out yet. I think I am sure about the double-entries, but if I undestood it correctly, TeXMakerX always start at the top of a .tex-file to work the search (& replace) queue. (Right?) But then it jumps back to the cursor, I guess. It's a bit irritating for me, because so far, I was used to and still am to TXC.

But thank you for taking care.

No, usually in the default it will start from the current cursor position and not jump back (except if your search reach the document end, than it will start from the beginning ).
However, if you disable the cursor checkbox, everything changes and it will start from the beginning, if you don't continue a search.

But this panel is very confusing, because there are some combinations of checkboxes and buttons (2^8 * 6), and in contrast to my post above, the cursor checkbox doesn't fix the replace all button bug. (I usually never disable it)

[edit:] But you could enable the Nachfragen checkbox to cancel the search once it looped through
