This. Absolutely 149% agree. That's a major brain fart on the part of Adobe.

Also, the default radio button on the Find/Change dialog box should be 
Document, not Book. If you Change All in a document, you have a chance to 
revert to saved, but Change All in a book will open, save, and close documents 
that are not already open. Let the user explicitly choose the Book radio button 
instead of it being the default.

This has happened to me at least 3 times. It's incredibly frustrating and a big 
time waster.

To Adobe Developers: This is at the TOP of my wish list for Adobe to fix. There 
should be a warning before a Change All operation or a button to hide the 
change part of the dialog box. The warning dialog box should NOT have an OK 
button that you can click accidentally by pressing Enter. It should be required 
that you actually click it (or press Tab to make the OK button active before 
you press Enter).

I back up my work files at the end of each day so I can go back to the previous 
day, which helps somewhat.

I don't think I actually pressed ALT+a. I think it is some sort of bug that 
when you copy/paste into the Find box and press Enter to quickly it thinks you 
pressed Change All.

We have recently  had 2 incidents where the Change All operation was launched 
accidently - the dialog box is open and has the focus and the writer 
accidently, or in another goal, uses the ALT-A key combination. Change All is 
launched - no permission is asked and no Cancel or Undo is available. If 
working in a book, the changes are book wide! Can be catastrophic, believe me.

Have you experienced this? Do you know of any solutions?

Many thanks,
