Finding and Replacing Text

PageLiner allows you to search for a text string and, optionally, replace it with a different text string. PageLiner always begins searching from the insertion point forward.

To find or replace text: Choose the Find/Replace command from the Edit menu. Enter the search string into the Find text box. To replace text, enter the new text into the Replace text box. Click on Find to begin the search. If PageLiner finds the search string it will highlight it. Click on Replace to change this occurrence or click on Replace All to replace all occurrences. To find the next occurrence without changing this one, click on Find again.

You can move the Find/Replace requester to help you see the found text in context. The requester can be left open while you work, so you can make changes to the text window and then return to the Find/Replace requester to continue the search.

You can close the Find/Replace requester and continue to search for and replace text. Choose the Find Again command from the Edit menu to search for the next occurrence or the Replace Again command from the Edit menu to replace the current occurrence and find the next one. This is a faster way to work because you can quickly make changes and continue searching without using the mouse.

NoteIf text is highlighted, it will be copied to the Find text gadget when the Find/Replace command is chosen.
