Replace formatting with new formatting

Hi

I would like to be able to change the formatting of specific words by using find/replace or project replace. For example, I have a French word that occurs quite a few times in my text: cherie. When I wrote the first draft this word had regular formatting. I would like to automatically change all instances of cherie so they are italicised. This is quite simple to do in OpenOffice (probably in Word but I haven’t tried that). I enquired and apparently this isn’t possible in Scrivener.

Please consider including this feature in a future version.

Thanks.
