Hi,

I usually have to replace a sequence of words, titles, pictures, coding....across multiple html files. The find and replace feature works fine, yet it can still be pretty time-consuming when replacing hundreds of words across dozens of files every time. Is there any faster way to makes these changes in bulk?

Something like the following:

- Replace sequence of : <Picture1>,<Text1>,<code1>

with : <Picture2>,<Text2>,<code2>

Thank you for your help!

It really depends on what, exactly, you're doing, but the F&R tool in DW "can" be made more efficient using Regular Expressions.

Though crafting those expressions isn't always straight-forward and can take some time themselves. 

The articles are older, but the information is still good, this might be of use to you...
