#427 Enhance SearchDialog with disable undo flag

Thomas Meyer

Enhance the SearchDialog with an option to disable the undo for search&replace-all operations. This enables jEdit to successfully search&replace larger text files without getting an OOM error.

    I think you may need to rebase this patch off the current trunk,

    This is actually the broken out patch of point 3.) from patch 3528205.

    First we should clarify if this option is still wanted. If yes I can do a rebase in the next days.

  • Hi,
    instead of an option that the user would select (and on which criteria, users don't expect to get OOM), why not catching the OOM, and when it happens open a dialog to ask the user if he want's to continue without any undo ? (I think Ultraedit does something like that)
