Searching through a long project
Thread poster: RichardDaly

Feb 1, 2012

I have a long project (100 or so files) - a Concordance search shows that I translated a term in a particular way in a previous file. I would like to change this. Can I do a search to find which file it is in, or do I have to open all the previous files and search manually?

Hi Richard,

You don't mention the version you are using, but if you use Studio then you can use the Batch Search & Replace Application from the Open Exchange (for 2009, it's installed in the start menu if you use 2011).
