Don't worry about those many files where you have to change a few things! There's no need to open every single file and edit them manually, Search and Replace does it all for you!
Search and Replace lets you create your own rule files for replacing strings in files or even in folders. It even supports regular expressions for advanced replace operations!
It works with plain text file formats like .txt. But you can also edit files using plain text format like HTML,XML,Tex,etc... if you know how to manipulate them.
Please be aware that this tool does not work with binary file formats!

What’s New

Version 1.2.6

Fixed a bug where no rules could be added to a new document.

Doesn’t work with Word

Note… this app does not work with MS Word.

I wanted the ability to replace the same dozen strings in a given file and found this a suprisingly difficult task solve. Maybe it's trivial for programmers to reference an array of some sort, but this app saved the day (and lots of time) for me. It would be nice for there to be some sort of confirmation prompt, like X instances were replaced etc, but that's about all I can muster as to a complaint about this app. A simple, focused life saver.

Does what it says

This app does what it says it does and nothing more. I would be nice to see the files it changed but for the price it did what I wanted it to do.
