Replace within selection

Asked by Tony Sam on 2011-05-19

Can gedit perform a replacing only within selection?
If not and if developers read this, I offer this convenient feature. :)
E.g., you need to replace all letters 'a' to 'A', but not in the whole text. You select a range you need and push the button "replace all", instead of manually controlling and replacing every letter one by one.

There is already an enhancement request upstream with the Gnome guys.
