Code Editor: Search/Find and Replace

We NEED the ability to be able to search text within a code block.  Currently there is no way to do this.

 

My workaround so far (which is a MAJOR pain and not that useable) is to select all, paste into either MS Code or Notepad++, and then search there.

There should also be the ability to do a search/replace (selectively ie: with Find Next, or all at once) just like other MS products.

In addition, being able to search (and replace) across ALL code blocks (a separate option) and ALL screens should also be possible (ie: find all instances where a variable is used for instance).

I should be able to search for all properties named X, and update the values of all instances of X to the formula or text Y.  Right now I am trying to implement color palettes that refer to centralised theme variables and having to go into each control (particularly the form ones) is a major pain in the arse.

Hello All - this is still part of our backlog, but due to other priorities it has not yet been planned to be worked on. @GregLi is tracking this work along with other improvements to our language experience. One of our firsts steps here is an update to our formula bar, this will be releasing shortly and will lay the foundation for us to add global search and find and replace in the future.

Three years overdue.  As basic to PowerApps as brakes to a car.
