Search & Replace keystroke workflow is odd / clunky

The keystrokes to do a search and replace are oddly inconvenient.

Ctrl+F, *searchterm*, Alt+Enter
Ctrl+F, Tab, *replaceterm*, Ctrl+Enter

I don’t understand why such a common workflow requires two extra keystrokes; specifically, why do I have to Find All before I can Replace All, and why does doing the Find All move the focus from the Find box?

I believe that an improvement would be either of the following:

  • Allow a Replace All without doing a Find All first.
  • Have the Find All keystroke (Alt+Enter) not cause the Find dialog to lose keyboard focus.
