I can't get it to work either. In the Find form I can tick the greyed items: Tags, names and values on the Replace form but the search does not find text that exists on the map and in the Find field.

I tried the search at the Find tab and it works well (MM 18.1.154)
Can you describe scenarios where search does fail at the Find tab please?

Looks like these elements are only supported for the Find function and not for the Replace function

I suggest you try the capabilities of MAP for MindManager addin.

It has many options and some of them may be right for your purpose:
eg

Property Renamer

When you work with Properties in your Maps it is very easy to build quite extensive and interactive Map content using Formulas. Topic Properties are referenced by the MindManager API using the Property Name. This is also used in the calculations used by Topic Formulas. This means that if you rename a Property after it has been utilized elsewhere in the Map, sometimes multiple times, the Topic Formulas can become broken and fail to work. The solution is to find all the occurrences of the Property in the Map and update the name which can be time-consuming on large Maps.

The Property Renamer function lets you safely rename an existing Topic Property while maintaining the integrity of any Topic Formulas where the Property has been used. All of this can be done in one sweeping process which takes mere seconds to complete, saving you precious time when making these changes. The Property Renamer function can be found on the Topic Properties group of the MAP ribbon menu.

or

Edit Property Value

When you are working with Custom Properties you may sometimes wish to edit the value of a specific Property. When you need to do this for one or two properties on their own, it is very easy to just edit them in isolation, but when you have utilized a Property across many Topics in the Map and you want to change the value that can soon start to take up a lot of time.

The Edit Property Value function now enables you to change a Properties value across all instances of that Property across the entire Map in one action thereby saving you having to repeatedly change each one.

Dear Ary,

  Thank you for the suggestion.

  My question, however was about basic functionality of MM - not about the well-known addin. Nevertheless how long is trial mode?

  Do you have a clue why the certain items are greyed out while switching from Find to Replace tab?
