Find/Replace Across Multiple XML Files

Thu Mar 03, 2016 8:20 pm

Hello All!

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Members in my research project encoded special characters using Unicode of the form U+0000. Unfortunately, we can't get these special characters to render. We've since begun using HTML codes which render just fine. The problem is that we have 100+ XML files in which all special characters are of the form U+0000.

It would take quite a bit of time to edit every file, so we would like to use the Find/Replace function to replace the Unicode codes with HTML codes.

Control + F brings up the menu to do so, but I've tested the function on three open XML files, and I can't get the function to search and replace across all open XML files. I've played with the various options in the dialog box but have been unsuccessful. Am I supposed to use an XPath expression to specify the scope of the Find/Replace function?

Additional Info: I'm using oXygen XML Editor 17.0

Thank you for whatever help you can offer!

For searching/replacing in files you can use Find > Find/Replace in Files and pick the appropriate scope and file filters. Make sure you use Preview when replacing.
