Before updating to Lion, when using the Find/Replace function in TextEdit, I could choose to select "Ignore Case", or I could leave that deselected in which case it would only Find & Replace instances which matched the case of the text I entered.


Now on Lion, instead of that dialogue box poping up giving me that option, the Find / Replace function is built into the TextEdit window, and there's no option to select whether to match or ignore case. As it is, it just ignores case and replaces all matches for the text found, regardless of case.


That is not what I want! I need to match case!


Can I do that in Lion, or is that functionality completely gone?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

    like a lot of Apple "Interface Improovements" the stuff is well hidden. What i just found on another board: Just click on the magnifying glass icon (left of where you enter search text). A drop down menu will appear with search options - "Ignore Case".


    There is also a lot of other neat stuff hidden there ... So happy searching! ;-)
