  You are right, the "Search" and "Next" buttons should be grouped with the search combo box and the same applies for "Replace" and "Replace Checked". On the other hand, I think it would be nice to have large find and replace combo boxes. Thus, we don't want to eat too much space with other widgets in the same row.
  I suggest the following :
  - add icons and help tooltips to the "Replace" and "Replace Checked" buttons
  - when the view is narrow, move the search combo box along with the "Search" and "Next" buttons on their own row; remove the button texts; remove the "Find" label. The same applies for the replace group.
  - when the view is large, restore the original view
  This way, the buttons are grouped logically, the combo boxes are large and someone who use it for the first time knows how to use the buttons even if there is no text in the buttons.
  I will add the resulting screenshots in the test plan.
  What do you think?
