Add multi-line support to Find/Replace

Please add multi-line support (with intelligent highlight/copy/paste into the search box) to all existing Find/Replace features. In other words, if the user highlights multiple lines and hits Ctrl+F, the search box should automagically expand slightly and show a scroll bar.

For non-evangelist, real devs, this feature alone would save MANY hours of development time.

        You can scrape by with regular expressions via \r\n for the find and \n for the replace, but I've found doing a replace all in the entire solution rearranges the text in the files and occasionally adds part of the directory in to the file along with a number of 0x00. It breaks more than it fixes.
