Enhance search & replace function

Please include citations in Search and Replace.

One example of why this is needed: Searching & replacing a person’s surname does not change the surname in citations. A surname can appear in the Citation Name, in various Citation Details (depending on the master source), Research Notes, Detail Comments, and probably additional parts of a citation. A surname may appear in hundreds of citations that currently have to be edited manually, one by one.

Another reason is to be able to correct the thousands of Citation Names that RM8 automatically generates during an upgrade. These Citation Names contain a great deal of extraneous punctuation and text that also must be edited manually.
