Can I do a search and replace?

Post by dramage » Sat Jul 10, 2010 6:19 pm

I have close to 100 comments that contain inaccurate information and I want to relace some text in all 100 comments. Is there a way to do a search and replace or do I have to manually go through each comment and make the change?

Hello dramage,

While using the advanced search (Ctrl + Shift + F) to search inside comments and/or bookmarks it is not possible to automate the replacement process. You will have to navigate to each of the comments and replace the text manually I am afraid.

Best,
Stefan

Hello berndpongo,

We need to utilise the text editting in v3 of our VIewer first, and after that - we might consider such a search and replace feature!

Best,
Stefan

Bump for a feature of search and replace soon. I think it will be really helpful.

Hi proactolreviewsz,

welcome to the forums and thanks for the input.

As Stefan pointed out, replace requires completion of the editing component of the Viewer so it is definitely something that will have to wait until after the initial release of V3.
