Replacing Text

If you are dealing with long amounts of text, you may need to use FreeHand’s Find Text dialog box.

To use the Find Text dialog box:

1.
Place your insertion point in the text block, or select the text block or path.

2.
Choose Edit > Find & Replace > Text to open the Find Text dialog box 16.

Figure 16. The Find Text dialog box allows you to search and replace text strings or invisible characters.


3.
In the Find field, type the text string you want to search for. In the Change to field, type the text string you want as a replacement.

4.
To search for only the word listed, click the Whole word box. If you want to search for the text exactly as typed in uppercase and lowercase, click Match case.

5.
Click to open the Special pop-up menus 17. This lets you insert the codes for the special characters into the Find and Change fields.
