Find & Replace Tag in subroutine replaces substring globally rather than locally


Applies To:

PAC Control Basic
PAC Control Professional

Versions Affected:

Problem affects versions: R9.4a


Symptoms:

If you are in a subroutine and choose Edit > Replace and then choose Tag in the Search For field, the replacement does not occur locally within the subroutine, as expected. Instead, the tag substring in the parent strategy is replaced (a global rather than a local scope).

Workaround:

Modify subroutine tag names one at a time.
Or use the Find & Replace option in the OptoScript block editor for each block of OptoScript in the subroutine.

Resolution:

Opto 22 is investigating this issue.
