find and replace
This is a minor issue, but annoying. When you open the Find and Replace box after using it once, the cursor is in the "Replace with:" box. Can the cursor always start in the "Find what:" box?

The problem is that the cursor has to start somewhere - the application cannot anticipate whether the user will change the 'Find what' or the 'Replace with' string.
Notice that after using find/replace, and then re-opening using Control+F (Find) this is the position of the cursor. The 'Replace with' string also remains until changed. So - if you know you need to search again for something else, just use Cntrl+F. Problem solved? Otherwise, learn to use the voice commands which are now very powerful.
This is not a good answer or complete solution.
