Beta Find And Replace

Ok so this is probably only a minor niggle which most professional programmers won't even use, but I'm not that professional and often decide that a Label would be better as a Button or a variable should be remained to better suit its intended purpose. For that reason I often use the find and replace feature. This used to be Ctrl+F which gave the option of finding and also replacing. I see that it is now F3 which is not a problem as I'll soon get used to that although I'd prefer Ctrl+H as it would be more in-line with other programs that have find and replace.

The problem that I have found is that if you highlight the word and press F3 it doesn't copy that word into the find box. Instead you need to remember to copy the word first and then paste it into the find box or type the value manually. As I said, its only a minor thing but a step back from the previous version in my opinion.

Also if you select a region of code it doesn't default to 'selection', which if you're not careful it is easy to apply the find and replace to the whole document and not just the selected area.

definitely needs to be back to normal (ctrl-f), at the very least it needs to be ctrl-h to be consistent. I use a keyboard "drawer" and my function keys aren't even accessible 99.9% of the time.
