Find and Replace

Dreamweaver can search your document and locate a particular piece of text. It can also replace one text string (a bunch of characters, whether they're code or words) with another.

To find a piece of text in the current page:

1.
With the current page open in the Document window, choose Edit > Find and Replace from the Document window menu bar, or press Ctrl+F (Command+F). The Find and Replace dialog box will appear (Figure 8.26).

For details on searching more than one page at a time, see the sidebar, next page.

Figure 8.26. Type the text you want to find in the Search For text box.


2.
Type what you're looking for in the text box. This can be a whole word, a phrase, or part of a word.

3.
To look for a particular case pattern (upper or lower), place a check mark in the Match Case checkbox.

4.
To look for text and ignore spacing differences (i.e., to find both "tophat" and "top hat"), place a check mark in the Ignore Whitespace Differences checkbox.

5.
Click on Find Next. If Dreamweaver finds what you're looking for, it will highlight the text in question on the current page (although you may have to move the Find dialog box to see it).

6.
Click on Close to close the Find dialog box.
