The Mathematica 6 search feature can locate expressions containing subscripts. The method (Windows version) is to press Ctrl+F, then select a subscripted expression and press Ctrl+E (this step copies the selection into the "Search:" field). Now repeatedly pressing "Find Next" results in Mathematica correctly locating all instances of the selected subscripted expression. When the "Replace", "Replace All", or "Replace and Find Next" buttons are used, however, no replacement is made. Please see the following screenshot: http://picasaweb.google.com/andrew.j.moylan/MathematicaScreenshots/photo?aut hkey=lxZHyQz6-vM#5075783145960832674 Any ideas on how to Search & Replace for subscripted expressions?
