Remove "PointF" to empty string in file...

Cannot search & replace in files. I get a message "The search could not be finished. Object reference not set to instance of an object.". Hitting the "FIND" button finds all relevant hits but replacing does not work.

See attached image... This seems to break when using an empty string as the "replace" word.

This is probably a trivial fix.

This appears to have been fixed. Works in git master.
