Author action to search and replace in file using regex

Hi,

I'd like to format my document by applying multiple regular expressions, preferably in text mode (not in author mode). (How) is this possible?

Greetings,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

An Oxygen plugin has enough API to manipulate the XML contents, either in the Text or in the Author editing modes.
We have a GitHub repository of Javascript-based Oxygen plugins:

https://github.com/oxygenxml/wsaccess-javascript-sample-plugins

One of the plugins there is called "contributePopupActionTextPage", it contributes a new contextual menu action to the Text editing page, action which when invoked takes the selected text content, changes it and inserts it back.

The plugins work using Oxygen's Java-based API:
