Search and search/replace history

Oftentimes you want to use a previously used regular expression; other times you might have been working on a complex regular expression and want to go back working on it; or perhaps you were searching for specific phrases and the app crashed before you could find what you wanted.  For these (and doubtless other) reasons, it would be very useful to have a history on the search and search/replace text fields.

Sounds like a good idea. I'll consider it.

I would need this feature too

I do a lot of text editing, not coding, but editing of large text files that eventually will be formatted for LaTex. Such a history or some sort of saved list of favorite Find/Replaces would be really helpful. For example, "Zap Gremlins", is one I use all the time (remove non-printing characters).
