Find/Replace Text in Selected Notes

Looking at another Forum question reminded me of this question which I keep forgetting to post:

 

In a Drawing, I want to Find/Replace text but only search Notes which I have selected, leaving all UNselected notes out of the process.

 

To put it another way: I have a drawing sheet open with tons of notes. I want to replace the text "Machine Screw" with "Self-Tapping Screw" in, lets say 10 notes which I have selected. When I try to do this with the Find/Replace Annotations tool and click on "Replace All" it goes ahead and replaces the text in all my notes, whether they are selected or not. I know I can go and repeatedly click on "Find Next" and decide for every note - but - well - you know - that's just not an elegant solution.

 

I looked in the Find/Replace options and there is no Check-Box for "Selected Annotations only"

 

Thanks!
