Also, do you know how to access the plugins provided by the gedit-plugins package?
1) If you click the "Search" menu, then "Replace", and click the "Replace All" button, it will replace all instances of the text you enter with what you entered to replace it with, not just the first occurrence.
2) Click "Edit", then "Preferences", then in the "Plugins" tab you can turn plugins on and off.
