text selection replace

Imfind that visual studios text selction word replace is very handy, is there any plugns that will apply this feature to MAxScript?

As in, when you use replace (cntrl + H), it only finds and replaces the words in the text you have highlighted.

That is built in to Maxscript. If you want it to replace all instances Use "Replace All" instead of "Replace". Also, if it is selecting words that have a portion of the find word in it, make sure you check "Match whole word only". The top line in the Replace Tool (ctrl + H, Edit > Replace) is for what you want replaced, the bottom line is for the new text. Am I missing something?

The problem is that it is replacing words in the whole of my MaxScipt, i only want it to work on the block of code that i have highlighted, but despite highlighting the code that i want changed.

It still replaces instances in all of the code.

for exmaple i may have 100 lines of code, but i only want to apply the find and replace tool to say lines 38 to 45. I cant seem to find a way of doing this

I believe this will be part of the new Maxscript ProEditor in Max 2008. Also, there are numerous freeware programs like PSPad that have this and can execute scripts inside max using the MXSCom by Rezn8.
