Title pretty much covers it. Just one more button: If I open Find and Replace with a selection active, let me do the replace only in that selection.

This would make it easy, for instance, to select a set of lines ended with line feeds and replace them with spaces, to form a single paragraph. That's what I'm trying to do currently.

I’m using Textastic as my coding editor on my iPad Pro.  I often will clone a section of code and then want to Find/Replace a variable (“x” -> “y”).  Restricting the Replace to selected text with allow me to update only the cloned code and not the original.
