    Find across multiple tabs in the same document is available through the magnifying glass.  Replace across tabs and search across documents is still to-be-implemented.

    I know about the magnifying glass, and it's good to know replace is coming. If and when  you implement it, I hope you support regex capture groups!

    +1 for regex groups. A mention of what dialect of regex you implement would be essential, making that 'regex' text next to the checkbox a link to whatever dialect you are using would be nice too.

    Makes sense.  For the time being, the regex dialect is Java 8's: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/java/util/regex/Pattern.html
    Unfortunately, due to our architecture, we use a different flavor for regex work within FeatureScript match and replace functions: C++'s http://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/regex/ecmascript

    I am not enough of a regexp expert to tell you exactly what the differences are.
