Request for Feature Enhancement (RFE) Summary: The Search and Replace feature only allows writers to search and replace content in the author mode. However, this does not resolve use cases where XML tags must be replaced across multiple files. 
Use-case: The writer needs to replace a product name, which is in plain text, with a <keyword>. 
Current/Experienced Behavior: Search and Replace only works in author mode. 
Improved/Expected Behavior: Search and Replace can work in either author mode or source mode. 
Environment Details (AEM version/service pack, any other specifics if applicable):  
Customer-name/Organization name: Broadcom Inc. 
Screenshot (if applicable):  
Code package (if applicable):

Great idea. This could apply to any DITA element or attribute you want to change.

I also vote for this enhancement. It would resolve a significant limitation in the current search and replace feature.
