Is there a document that states and describes all the subtleties in the new
Search/Replace Dialog?

I had to do a global change of #RET# to |RET| in something like something
like #RET##INS##RET# and it found the first #RET# but not the second one. It
still seemed to do that with the ``Delimit by Whitespaces'' turned off.

Good Luck,
