replace all has to be triggered twice
i am seeing some unexplained behaviour with replaceall regex in that it sometimes has to be run twice to truly replace all.
I isolate a phrase & set up the find regex with a blank replace.
then I click replace all & it does one or two replacements, but when I click it again, it does a whole lot more.
I can't puzzle out why it needs to run twice.
e.g. most my recent example - removing unwanted anchors from chapter starts..
I use find
<a class="calibre7" id="filepos\d+"></a>
+ replace all
. expecting 29 hits , 1 per chapter, instead I got only 2 hits, followed by 27 hits at next attempt.
the open xhtml was 1st chapter.
mode regex, all hteml files - down + replace all. nothing else ticked.
any explanation as to why it needed to be run twice?

I think there may be a glitch with the replace all functionality as I have had a similar experience.
I have a saved Group (to clean up the .css page) with about 9 entries. I hold CTRL (to prevent it from defaulting to All HTML Files) and click on replace all...and it skips the first entry every time. I have to run it a 2nd time to get it to apply.
I hope that helps someone figure out if/where the glitch may be...

This is a known issue that should be fixed for the next release.
The problem is due to the way Pretty Print Tidy is run - it wasn't being run before the first replace all.
