Share search & replace text

I can appreciate why each open R script doc has its own search box with its own text, but is there a way to have a shared search/replace text? I usually am looking for the same text in different open files.

You can use the Find in Files option from the Edit menu (shortcut: Cmd + Shift + F) to search text across all open files.

Replacing text across multiple files is a new feature being added in RStudio 1.3. You can read more about it here

Thanks. Yes, I did see that in the multi-file search, but I like being in the window and cmd-G'ing until I find what I need. Seeing the line out of context isn't always helpful.

So a simple shared search/replace text option would be great. (Frankly I was surprised the first ten times it didn't happen.)
