Are you talking about replacing a style or changing the characteristics of a style? If you are just trying to change from one style to another, a find and replace tool will do this. You may have to look carefully at the find expression used in case the HTML differs (e.g. inline styles, line breaks) but some experimentation will stand you well.
Yes, I am talking about replacing StyleA with StyleB for all topics within an RH project.
I looked at the Mult-File Find and Replace tool, and it does not seem to offer this feature.
Should I rather be looking elsewhere?
>> FAR is my personal favourite
>> BK ReplaceEm which is free
These r both plug-ins to RH?
Are you expecting to find something that expressly offers Find and Replace Styles? It doesn't work that way. The tool will look at the code and replace StyleA with StyleB if those are the text strings you define.
Do back up the project first. These tools save hours of work but can also wreck your project in seconds.
As Peter says, they do require some knowledge of the underlying HTML. For example put simply, search for a <H1> tag and replace it with a <H2> tag. Bear in mind that you'll also have to do a find and replace on the closing tags (e,g, </H1> tag and replace it with a </H2> tag.

Yeeessss! Just like Word.
Ok, so it's a text search.
Btw, I have been finding that doing a text search in RH's HMTL view doesn't find the things I want.
It should do when searching a single topic. For multi file find and replace, as Colum says, the RH tool is the best one around.
