According to the help, it is possible to do a global search/replace.
Problem situation: My project has 20 documents, most of which have several identical segments that need to be changed.
How can I do this?
The list of documents provides no Search/Replace, neither from the context menu nor from the Tools; Ctrl+Shift+H also does not open any input screen.

A project manager can do a global "Search & Replace" over all documents in the project. A "simple" translator cannot do that.

Thanks for the info. This is what I "feared".
