    Replacing Multiple Words With One Find/Replace Command?

    rotoscopels Level 1

      I'm using Dreamweaver CS4, but I image this question is relateable to newer versions of the program as well.


      We are all familiar with the tried and true Find/Replace All function, which is quite common. Instead of having to repeat this over and over for each value I need to replace, I'd like to do everything in one shot. By setting up a default HTML template with the place holder words in each line I regularly update, I'd hope to do one single Find/Replace function. Here is an example of what I mean:


      I want to open the Find/Replace window and tell it to FIND: A, B, C, D, E and then in the REPLACE box under that I want it to update these values with 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.


      The question is how? I can't get it to work in this way. It will only update multiple instances of the same repeating value, which is not what I need. If Dreamweaver is incapable of this, can you recommend an HTML editor that can? It will save a ton of time.
