Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 20.0.0.1 and an existing
    syntax file. In the syntax file you would like to replace some
    text one after another with Edit - Replace. On this dialog you
    use the Replace button to find and replace the single instances.
    After the last search string was found you notice that the Save
    icon on Syntax Editor is greyed out. The File - Save menu is
    greyed out as well. If you close ths syntax editor you are not
    prompted to save the changes.
    
    This was reported to IBM SPSS Development. As a workaround use
    Replace All button instead of Replace button.
