    Before Lion, I could quickly type Cmd-F and then Cmd-A to Find and Replace All in programs like TextEdit. With the new find bar, I can't figure out a shortcut for this. I know that I have to press Cmd-Opt-F to bring up the Replace part of the find bar, but there doesn't seem to be any way to access the Replace All button from my keyboard.

    Anyone found a shortcut for this or any work arounds? Even a shortcut for just a normal "Replace" would be better than nothing.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm gonna pull a little necromancy here in the vain hope that this hotkey actually exists, can't seem to find indication of any such keystroke elsewhere on the web :(

    I guess I'll have to deal with letting a hand free from the keyboard to reach over and click that blasted button. If there is indeed no hotkey for this in TextEdit, anyone know of another simple text editor that does have one?
