Find and replace is one of the most popular tools. This tool searches an entire document for a particular word, character or phrase and then switches it to the word, character or phrase you want. If you weren’t aware you could do this, it can be a brilliant addition to your arsenal and can really make all the difference especially when working on large amounts of text. Let’s take a closer look at this tool.
There are many reasons to use a find and replace tool. Here are some examples:
The find and replace tool is important to ensure consistency in your document and you will benefit from using this tool as it will make sure your work looks professional. It will also benefit you by allowing you to increase productivity by avoiding having to scan and manually change out the word, phrase, symbol or name.
If you have never used the find and replace function before on TextMechanic you may not be familiar with how to use it. In the first box, “Find this”, enter the text to be found and eventually be replaced. The second box, “Replace with” then will be the text that will be replacing the text you provided in the “Find this” box above. Last but not least, the third box will be your all of you text. Keep in mind that you can copy and paste your text into the box or upload the text if the file is large.
