I haven't used RoboHTML in a few years and am getting back to using it again. this is a fairly simple question, but the Help for RoboHelp doesn't seem to provide an answer.
How do you do a simple find and replace across multiple topics? I want to search for a text string and replace it with another text string.
Have you tried to use the "Multiple File Find and Replace" option present in RoboHelp. You may access this option from Edit->Find and Replace in Files.
Before trying to find the files, please ensure that the where field in the dialog points to the correct location of your project.
Welcome to the forum.
Maybe that's not the best tool for the job. It only works on a single line in the code and often the string searched for is across two or more lines.
Try FAR from http://www.helpware.net.
Whatever you do, backup first. Both RoboHelp's own tool and FAR work at code level so they can both wreck a project in seconds. Not a problem if you have that backup.
