Search AND Replace

Post by jeffp » Thu Sep 28, 2017 6:46 pm

Now that you have the ability to edit content in the PDF with the Edit Content Tool, do you have plans to add a Search and Replace option so a user can replace all instances of a piece of text, without having to use the Edit Content Tool in each place.

We got word from one of our users that Adobe seems to have that feature.

Thanks.

Hello Jeff,

This one is already in the Feature Request list and should be implemented in one of the nearest future releases.

Cheers,
Alex

Hello, PDF XChange Editor Users,

I came here and registered just in case I might find why my search of the online product manual showed nothing regarding searching and replacing text -- though it was nice to learn that I can search and replace bookmarks. Now I see that this feature has been a user request for quite a while so it must be difficult to implement despite its obvious usefulness to users who are re-editing PDF files.

It's probably not necessary to add my voice to the chorus of requests but since I'm here I will do so.

The feature list of the PDF XChange Editor is already very impressive and while I have been using it for almost a year and a half I still find useful options that I didn't see before, so thanks to the developers and programmers.

I agree, find and replace, is the most important missing feature. It's the only thing I'm really missing since I switched from Soda PDF.
