This can be done in the Demo application supplied, just open the C# example

1. Select lines 13-17

2. Type Ctrl+H to bring up the search and replace overlay, make sure selection is in the search combobox

3. Type 'error' into the search box, and 'aaaaaaa' into the replace box

4. Select lines 20-22

5. Click the replace all icon in the search overlay. The original section has its text replaced.

Hi Marc,

Thanks for letting us know about this.  It appears that Visual Studio updates the selection scope range when focus enters the search overlay pane.  We will update ours to do the same. 

Please write our support address and mention this thread if you'd like to test a preview build with the change.
