|Product Version||OpenMPT 1.27.01.00 / libopenmpt 0.3.1 (upgrade first)|
|Target Version||OpenMPT 1.27.05.00 / libopenmpt 0.3.6 (upgrade first)||Fixed in Version||OpenMPT 1.27.05.00 / libopenmpt 0.3.6 (upgrade first)|
|Summary||0001082: Find & Replace Pre-fill-in|
When only one event in the PE is selected, opening the Find & Replace dialog will populate the Find fields with the selection. The default location will be the given pattern in the given channel. This should reduce the number of clicks when the user knows what he wants to change, and it's only one tone in the pattern.
Changing one attribute in a Pattern within only one channel has many steps involved, but selecting the whole channel in the PE wont's help the Find dialog parse what should be changed. If the user knows what he wants to change, he can just select one example of it in the PE, then Find will assume that's what we're looking for. All the user has to do is define what he wants to replace it with.

|Tested code revision (in case you know it)|
I have thought about this before - the reason it's not implemented yet is that it's definitely not always the workflow that the user may want. Quite often I find myself doing similar search(&replace) actions in a row, and in that case I'd have to re-enter my search terms every time.
Or another idea: We could populate those fields with pattern data where the checkbox has not been set in a previous search. Because then we can just repeat a previous search exactly the same way as before, or we can just quickly check the appropriate checkboxes for the other stuff.
Okay, here's something to try... r9616 / OpenMPT 1.28.00.10 will be available soon at https://builds.openmpt.org/builds/ and automatically fills in those values that have not been used in a previous search. Let me know how that works for you. I also squashed four other bugs in Find&Replace while I was at it...
This has been backported to OpenMPT 1.27.05.00, released today. Feel free to re-open if it doesn't feel quite right yet.
