How can I change a confirmed segment in many documents

I have a project with very many documents (>50). These documents are very similar, but three segments need to be changed in most of these documents (which have all been confirmed). How can I best do this? I have tried clearing all translations, but the old (incorrect) segment rather than the new corrected segment is inserted.

Create a view Mar 17

If it is a local project of your own, you can easily create a view and then anything you change in the first instance of a segment gets propagated to all the files (as long as you have autopropagation turned on). After making any edits, delete the view. The individual documents are updated automatically (even before you delete the view).

Autopropagation Mar 17

Thanks for your reply, I created a view but there seems that something is still missing.

Although "Allow auto-propagation" and "Overwrite confirmed settings" are both set, no changes are propagated in the view.

Search and replace Mar 22

Just select the proper scope: "open documents" or "entire project".

Also "Work on views" Mar 22

Thanks for the tip. What actually was missing was that the "Work on views" checkbox was not set; I would have thought this was the default because I was editing the view. It now works as I require.
