Feature Suggestion: Search and Replace Selected Lyrics

I’d like to request a feature: Search and Replace Selected Lyrics. This would come in handy when wanting to quickly correct a misspelling in the lyrics, everywhere it occurs. It would also be handy when wanting to replace "oo"s with "oh"s, or "la"s, with "na"s, etc.

A more generalized version might be to search and replace all text, not just lyrics, though I suspect that might be tricker to implement.

Thanks for considering this feature.

For the time being, you can use Edit Lyric Line to get the whole line of lyrics for one staff, copy it into a text editor, make the changes and paste it back.

I use this frequently for things like correcting wrong hyphenation in XML imports.
