Up until last week, i was just using notepad or textpad or even firefox to find and replace keywords. CTRL + F does the job in most applications. I always love saving time and energy so i was delighted when i came across a way to search through entire FOLDERS to find and replace keywords.
You can do it in Dreamweaver. You can’t do it in textpad or notepad (you can only search within files). Needless to say, Dreamweaver has now become my no.1 editing tool 😉
Simple CTRL + F, which will pull up the find and replace box… the click on the ‘find in’ dropdown menu and change it to ‘folder’…. navigate to your folder and there you have it… find and replace keywords in an entire folder of files or subfolders….
Hugely valuable to web developers. I’m not sure if this is well known or whether i’m just slow to pick up on it, but it’s almost worth getting Dreamweaver for this feature alone Apart from dreamweaver i use notepad, notepad++, textpad & wordpad for basic text editing. I never use word unless i’m writing an ebook or tutorial for someone or something. What do you guys use and why?!
