Error description

  • Add a note to a diagram.  Add text to the note.
    Use Advanced Search and Replace to search for the text in the
    note.
    
    The text will be found, but when the note is selected in the
    results and Auto-Replace is run, the Note text will not be
    replaced.
    
    The online help says the following:
    
    The Auto Replace feature cannot be used on the following items
    because
    they do not qualify to be replaced automatically:
    
        Read-only elements.
        A description that includes hyperlinks
        Stub or unresolved element names
        The name of an event reception, constructor, destructor,
    generalization, or hyperlink
    
    
    None of those limitations apply to a Note on a diagram.
    
    It should be documented that text is not replaced in a Note
    since it is not a model element.
