Replace All sucks upon too many occurrences! How can I speed it up?

(from TED Notepad FAQ)

The main search/replace feature was never designed to be used for thousands of replacements, which is why it might be slow and resource-consuming if used massively. To get better results, use Extended Replace tool (Alt+Ctrl+R), which replaces within current selection and carries out all replacements in one go. This tool runs perhaps more than hundred times faster; and creates only one big undo step instead of tons of small undos.

Note: If you wish to Replace over the entire document, select all text prior to replacing.
