Introduced in v5.1.23

The search-replace operator uses an extended syntax that allows for multiple suffixes and parameters to be passed:

[search-replace:<flag list>:<regexp-mode>[<search-term>],[<replacement>]]
  • flag-list: g for global mode to replace all matches, i for case-insensitive mode, Introduced in v5.2.0 m for multiline mode, "gim" for all. (optional)
  • regexp-mode: regexp to treat the first parameter as a regular expression (optional).
  • search-term: string or regular expression that should be replaced
  • replacement: string that should replace the search-term

Either parameter can be a string, a text reference or a variable
