For all the error trapping LB employs on program exit ("Save changes?," "Are you sure you want to exit?"), there is one place it has none, but I think ought to.

I refer to the Find/Replace tool. Although I have used this extensively for years without problems, recently I inadvertently deleted a bunch of stuff by pressing "Replace All" when I meant to press the adjacent "Find" button. This kind of error can be hazardous to your program.

If a NOTICE "Are you sure you want to Replace All?" were incorporated, AND (or at least) the "Confirm" RADIOBUTTON was set, rather than reset, this kind of potential disaster from a "slip of the mouse" would be largely avoided.

In this case, does pressing Undo help at all? I remember the Undo button didn't quite work as I'd expect it to (it would just retype the last few characters deleted).

Hopefully the undo function will be improved in LB5.
