R Studio Version 1.3.820 Global Find Replace Does Not Work

Dear R Studio,

I was testing 1.3 preview and it seems that Global Find / Replace does not work. I used the zip version on Windows 10 PC. Please see attached screenshot.

Thank you and best regards,

Hi @armenic thank you for testing out the new feature! I believe the issue here is that the file is being changed, but is not being refreshed. If you close and reopen the file (or look at it outside of RStudio) do you see the new text? I can see how this behavior is confusing and have a filed an issue to refresh the open files here: https://github.com/rstudio/rstudio/issues/6229 . Please let me know if this is indeed what's causing your issue.

Dear @melissa,
Thank you for following-up in the issue. The issue still exist even if I close/open the file or even if I close/open the R Studio. Please see the attached GIF. Apparently this forum reduces the size of GIF :frowning:, so please check it in GitHub issue instead.


Thank you and best regards,
Edgar Manukyan
