Really bad feature- select and find and replace

If you select a block of text and then select find and replace. FlashDevelop puts that block straight into the find area- that's a big nuisance- if I wanted to do that I would have used copy and paste into the find area. Its makes the search in selected area option dumb- search for itself in its own area. Its unlikely anyone would search for a block of text- some unique words would be enough find a block. Please don't have autoinsert into find area or any FD query tool (at least not by default if its an setting problem)- FD user should have to type in or copy and paste.

I was going to complain that if you delete it in the Find area then it deletes it in your code (undoable but a nuisance) however it seems that 4.4.3 (R2784) has fixed that bug.
