Replace "?" character

Thu Dec 19, 2013 6:19 am

Hi,
I'm very new to Oxygen and can't find this in any forums or documentation. I know this is simple, but just can't figure it out. I'm using Oxygen Author, vs 14.2, GUI. I would like to find and replace the following text in multiple XML files in the same directory.

Find:

Code: Select all

http://silvia.colorado.edu/.extracttoolA?


Replace:

Code: Select all

http://phyllis.colorado.edu/version1/


Thank you!

Hi,

You can use the Find > Find/Replace in Files dialog.
If you want to search the literal text, please make sure that the "Regular expression" option is disabled. Otherwise, if treated as a regular expression, '.' (any character) and '?' (preceding token is optional) are treated as special characters.

Regards,
Adrian

Thank you for your quick reply, Adrian.

Searching the literal text didn't work, but I finally did find a workaround using the "\" character and regular expressions.
