Yes yes yes!!!! This is very needed!!! If would be great to have similar functionality as has. Some text authors are really bad and DTP operator has to replace all spaces with non-breaking spaces in front all prepositions etc... (with regex it is easy).

I second that.

Search and Replace should also work on more than one Element at one. As it is now, you can search just in the selected text Element. You should be able to search through all Elements on a Page, all Elements in a Document.

There should also be Style Search and Replace, e.g. for all possible text features. Some are missing now.
