Save search strings

Post by bburns » Mon Oct 28, 2019 7:20 pm

I frequently have to use regex in my searches to perform cleanup routines on files. While I know I could write some XSL to do this, it seems like allowing users to save query strings in the Find/Replace functionality would solve the problem and be a bit more elegant solution.

We already have a feature request for this on our issue tracking tool. I've added your vote and mentioned your use case.
For future reference it is issue EXM-21462.

Was this feature request ever implemented? I can't find anything that make this possible in Author 22.1. I have a similar need. I have a universal find and replace that I want to save and make available for all users. Is there any way to make this possible? Possibly with a code template?

Hi Flandece,

I'm sorry but we do not yet have such a feature available. If you can tell us more about your use case, I can add it on the opened issue.
How about if you create custom XML Refactoring scripts based on XSLT? ... tools.html
