Surely the Find/Replace Objects dialog boxes don't just restrict itself to searching on the current page... that would be stupid but it seems to be that way. Am I missing something?
You can use the Find and Replace wizards to locate and edit objects in a large drawing.
Using search criteria that you specify, the Find wizard guides you step-by-step when you need to find and select objects in a drawing. The search criteria can include object type and its related properties, fill and outline properties, vector effects applied to objects, or the name of an object or style. For example, you can search for and select all rectangles with rounded corners and without fill, or all text on a path. You can also search for objects that contain the same properties as a selected object. You can change the search criteria in the middle of a search. You can also save search criteria for later use.
The Replace wizard guides you through the process of finding objects that contain the properties you specify and then replacing those properties with others. For example, you can replace all object fills of a certain color with fills of a different color. You can also replace color models and palettes, outline properties, and text attributes, such as font and font size.
You can also search for specific words and replace them with other words. For more information, see "Finding, editing, and converting text."
IS THIS WHAT YOU'RE MISSING?
Hi Jami, No, you arn't missing anything, it's so. But if you give some details of what exactly you wanna find, may be we can help, there are some professional and some free macros that could help you, but give some details first.
Thanks, shame it doesn't do it already. Will let you know if we need further help.
No, that's what I was using. But it only searches the current page.
I too have this same problem..
Why doesn't it save a history automatically.. last used find and replace settings.. and have a list of maybe the last 3 used.
Also, search over all pages feature is a must..
Maybe adding Find and Replace colour to the palette docker might be an idea too..
