    I agree. A work-around in current editor is to place the caret at
    a sub's or function's first line, "FUNCTION ThisOrThat()..", right-click
    with the mouse and chose "Select block". This way, entire sub or
    function is selected (found that out after playing around a bit -
    next time, I hope PB will include a help file for the editor as well..)

    Then, copy selection, open up a new doc, paste, do search and replace,
    select and copy all, after which you can return to the original code.
    If you have left the sub/function there selected, you can simply paste
    the changed code back. I often do this to ensure I don't replace stuff
    beyond the sub or function I'm working with.

    Unfortunately, "Select block" doesn't work with CALLBACK FUNCTION,
    but by manually selecting those, one can still use the same approach.

    It sure would be nice to have an option when finding/replacing to limit the search to the next END (SUB|FUNCTION) statement. I'm often only interested in the FUNCTION or SUB which I currently working on and it is a pain when the next search result is thousands of lines of code away...
