Description - With as much as I work with a segment used multiple times throughout a Workspace report, it would be very helpful to have the ability to select that Segment and choose a different segment to replace it with, and then have the ability to choose to replace it everywhere else in my Workspace report.

Why is this feature important to you - The amount of time I currently have to spend moving through a large report and replacing every instance of a segment I used is very time consuming, and being able to do this would greatly reduce the amount of time it takes to update the report, particularly because it is one I use on a regular basis.

How would you like the feature to work - Select the cog/gear on a segment and provide a link to change the segment.  Take the user to an interface to select a different segment and then have two checkboxes: replace all instances in the panel, or replace all instances in the entire Workspace report.

Current Behaviour - Currently, I have to navigate my entire report and drag the new segment over the segment I want to replace in every instance.  This takes a lot of time, because I will have multiple segments that have to replace other segments throughout my report.  Also, the interface is not always smooth with quickly allowing me to replace a segment.  Sometimes it only wants to provide the option to Add it as a new one, because the interface can be temperamental.

I would propose to widen the scope to make it applicable for metrics and date ranges too.

@Andrey_Osadchuk I am very much in agreement there.  I figured start with one and then hopefully the ability would branch out since performing this function with a segment would likely be carried over into those components as well.
