No, your absolutely right! Rev's inbuilt script editor is MUCH improved, and
I can't say enough about GLX2. And yes, I could spend some time to write my
own Rev plug-in that could do these, but at the moment, I find it much
faster, when needed, to simply open the files in BBEdit (find differences)
or copy and paste into BBEdit (find balancing errors). You asked what was
missing so these are nice to have improvements, not deal breakers.

Robert Brenstein wants,

powerful Search/Replace which optionally uses GREP
with optional Find All search mode

You know, in the Rev's Edit menu, at the bottom is Find and Replace (cmd-F).
You have multiple options to include or exclude what and where you search.
There is also a button that specifies that you've used GREP in your search

To paraphrase Richard, What would you like to see in Find and Replace that's
not in the one available?
