When I use Find/Replace to search for a particular TU in the Translation Memory View, it only searches one page (50 TUs), and than comes with the message "Finished Search Current Page. Do you wish to continue searching the next page?"

Is there a way to search the whole TM, instead of page by page? I've been looking for some setting to change, but haven't found anything.

First, in Search Detail specify text you need to replace May 28, 2012

First, in Search Detail specify either Source or Target Text you need to find. The program will list all TUs with the text you've specified. Then you can use the Find/Replace feature to replace the text.

Still page by page May 28, 2012

However, the search only goes through the first page. I have the same problem and would be grateful for an answer.

Batch edit May 28, 2012

Instead of using the find & replace icons in the bar at the top, which goes through screen by screen, you should be using batch edit.

Go to file>batch edit and add a new action (find&replace).

Batch edit is a powerful feature because you can combine different actions (rename fields, delete tags, F&R, etc.). It doesn't have an undo button though, so I suggest you make a copy of your TM before you carry out any batch editing tasks.

Search+ Find/Replace and Bathch Edit will work for me. May 28, 2012

Thanks, Emma and František, for the suggestions.

Emma, I have never used Batch Edit but will give it a try. It sounds very useful in a lot of situations.
