TexSearch is simply a gui for grep which does not replace strings. You need to use another tool to do as you ask.

Indeed.

The user should not care that TextSearch uses grep internally. That's not a good reason to mark this bug invalid. However, I don't think replacing of text fits well into TextSearch anyhow. But that's just me. Usually, I am using TextSearch to either find text, or find text that I want to replace, but in all the latter cases I couldn't have simply replaced the string, more needed to be done. So what are some good use cases for replacing a string across files? Note that Pe comes with standard Haiku releases and has a much more powerul multi-file find&replace feature.
