In common text editor, there are contains a feature to search & replace text in the document. The MarkdownPad 2 Pro only have Find feature. I think sometimes we need a replacement feature in the editor.
I agree. Strongly missing feature. Please support REGEX-Options in the next step after implementing simple search & replace
Thanks for the feedback! I'll make sure to include regex support in the requirements for this feature.
Hello, I too would love regex-enabled Find/Replace.
@Desi Thank you for the feedback!
Just purchased the Pro version and realized that Search/Replace was missing. Very important to have this feature. All around a good product and good price point.
I need this so much! I'd use it every session.
RegExp enabled is nice, but a simple string replacer is really breaking my editing flow.

Any word on this? I really need a basic S&R, to the point where I now start to use other tools (my code editor) to edit Markdown if I know I have to S&R many strings.
I write a lot of README.md's for Github and NPM, and many times these are based on previous versions or copies. Without S&R this is not a lot of fun finding mistakes later on.
This feature is in the works, and will likely be included in either version 2.4 or 2.5, depending on other features that are currently in development.
I appreciate your patience.
@Bartvds I can ensure a crude version of find/replace is included with the upcoming 2.4 release of MarkdownPad.
Can you please provide an idea of what you consider critical requirements of this feature?
Cool, looking forward to it!
I'd be happy with plain text find/replace, call it 'Windows Notepad style'.
I see 2 fields (Find, Replace), and 4 buttons (Next, Replace, Replace All, Cancel), and a check-box for case-sensitivity.
@Bartvds Great, thanks for the feedback.
@Bartvds The 2.4 release is nearly finished with lots of great features, and I'd like to release it ASAP without holding it up for the still-in-development find/replace feature. I just wanted to give you a heads up that Find/Replace will definitely be included in 2.5, which shouldn't be long after the 2.4 release.
Assuming feature requests on find and replace are still open, I'd love to have a 'selection' option, similar to Notepad++, so I could, for example, replace all instances within the currently selected text.
RegEx would be great too, but I'd rather have a basic F&R in 2.5 than wait for a more advanced system in a later release.
@NickD Thanks for the feedback, I'll make sure to include an option for searching in selection in the long term.
+1 on the search and replace feature! So happy to hear that it's planned for a future release. I am looking forward to it!
Like others, even the most basic "notepad-like" find/replace would be very useful.
Being able to perform searches and replaces in multiple files (e.g. like notepad++) would be great!
Just throwing my hat into the ring and bumping this thread, as the last reply was over 3 months old and a basic search and replace would be very much appreciated.
Although MarkdownPad has become a part of my everyday workflow, I find it frustrating that it's still lacking features such as find and replace.
