operation ended with a global substitution).
If any find or replace operation runs into the end of the document (in the direction
indicated by the
SearchBack flag) and stops, then and only then will a
RepeatLast command “wrap around” to the other end of the document to
continue the find or replace operation.
RepeatLast is especially useful for researching a given number of times, or

accomplishing this is:

The important thing about this sequence of actions is that it will
work this way even in a macro. The
Replace command cannot be used
in a macro unless you really want to interact with
ne during the
macro execution. Avoiding interaction during macros is the primary
reason the commands
