Hi,

I've overridden WordBreakFinder property populating WordContainsAdditionalCharacters collection with additional characters (such as $ and -) as since words of PowerShell language can contain them. Selection works fine in the editor: I can select the whole words such as variables
$myForm
or commandlets
Get-Acl
But if I try to search for the whole word using standard FindReplaceForm I fail to find variables (I suppose because of $ character).

How can I make '$' character to be considered a part of the word for FindReplaceForm?

Thanks in advance,
Alexey.

Hi Alexey,

Right now the find/replace features uses regular expression engine and that engine is coded to consider "words" as the standard word pattern, meaning it doesn't even know what a language or WordBreakFinder is. I can add an item to the TODO list to look into this in the future and see if there is anything we can do.
