How to find only text that is visible in Author mode?

Post by Carl » Fri Sep 11, 2020 12:48 am

I need to do a massive search & replace in my project to uppercase specific terms. However, I only want to change the visible text, as seen in Author mode. Not text that is part of directory paths or file names, as seen in Text mode. Is this possible to do?

Hi Carl,

The Find/Replace in FIles dialog has an "Enable XML Search options" checkbox. You can check that and then only check the "Element Contents" checkbox to search only in text but avoid searching inside attribute values for example.
