Can't find and replace with a different style

Trying to find all instances of E. coli and replace it with E. coli (in italics) in the titles of my references, but I can’t select italics because the boxes for “style” are greyed out. (I go Edit > Find/replace > Fonts)

Am I doing something wrong? (reference manager 11)

You aren’t doing anything wrong.

Currently, the font settings for find and replace simply aren’t available.

The button there has existed for many versions, but has never had any available options in it.

I would highly recommend that you submit a Product Suggestion for this function, which I think everyone would like to see actually start working.  You can find the Product Suggestion Form on this page…

That pretty much goes for any feature you’d like to see in the software.
