Global Search and Replace

Postby Qathy » Thu Jun 25, 2015 11:08 am

Is there a feature that will allow me to search through all text within my Viewlet project to find mistakes, typos and/or replace individual words or entire phrases?

Yes. This feature is called Search and Replace. There are two options available in this tool. The Search option allows you to search for a specific word or phrase within your project. The Replace option allows you to perform all the steps for the 'Search' as well as replace specific 'searched' words or phrases manually or automatically.

Search
  • Select Edit > Search and Replace from the menu bar.
  • In the dialog that displays, select the 'Search' tab.
  • Enter the Text you want to search for in the field provided.
  • Select additional search parameters as needed.
  • Click the 'Find Next' button to perform the search operation.
