Docs say "not implemented yet" but it is at least partially implemented. The command itself works and the keyword 'ALL' is recognized. However the direction cannot be specified (at least, as documented and variations thereof). The default direction is 'FORWARD' and is the only direction possible -- interestingly 'BACKWARD' is not available from the GUI so it is possible that it is simply not implemented.

Note: finding of text to replace is from the current text cursor position. If the desire is to replace all of a certain text in an article use TextCursor('BOA') before this command.
