Find and Replace Extension Not Working with Split Transactions

I have the same issue as was raised with To clarify, this issue only applies when trying to replace the Description field relating to a split transaction, otherwise the search and replace works fine.

This issue has existed for a few years. When first discovered, I contacted the developer of the 3rd party plugin ( who acknowledged the issue stating that an update would be required to the plug in. That update has never been provided so this issue remains.

Search and replace does not yet exist in Moneydance. Isn't it time for this to be part of the native application?

I am using the latest version of MD (buIld 1656) and the plug in (build 1210).

Thanks, Grant
