    PLEASE add basic search and replace in scripts. How can a professional tool costing nearly $600 not have that? I cannot name another product anywhere that lets you write "code" (OK, scripts) that doesn't include basic search/replace. Paying an additional $400 for a third-party tool is not a good (nor should it be expected) solution to a version 1.0 type feature.

     

    Also, no UNDO?  The lack of UNDO has caused me nothing but problems. Again, FMP is the only tool I can name that lacks such a basic feature.

     

    I continue to be baffled why these basic editing (extremely basic refactoring) features could be missing from a $600/Version 14 Tool. Without these basic tools, I rarely use FMP for anything beyond a quick simple personal project. Or, put another way, how can a developer take an environment seriously that lacks basic search/replace/undo? Without basic refactoring tools, the new "script work-space" is only half-baked (and anywhere else search/replace/undo should be but isn't).

     

    Thanks,
