No

Currently the jEdit search dialog has no Accelerators for Find nor for Replace.
I suggest to use Alt-F and Alt-E respectively.

Currently one has to Tab a lot until Replace gets the focus.

Also the visual feedback is somewhat confusing, as the focus is indicated by a blue border whereas the Find button is still completely blue, so one thinks the Find button has the focus (see attachment)

(jEdit 4.5.2, Java 1.7.0_09, XP)

    Hi,

    mhh! Strange. The code is commented out, but once was in org/gjt/sp/jedit/search/SearchDialog.java !

    the subversion log reveals:

    r18759 | daleanson | 2010-10-10 15:17:07 +0200 (So, 10. Okt 2010) | 1 Zeile

    Added "Replace" button to Search and Replace dialog. This allows a 'replace once' function as opposed to 'replace and find'. See tracker #3084224.

    Which is feature request https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3084224&group_id=588&atid=350588

    btw. when you tab in reverse with shift-tab it's not that many key presses...

    If I recall correctly, the functionality I "added" for 3084224 already existed but was commented out. Perhaps I didn't uncomment enough? I won't be able to check until next week.
