Find and Replace

You can find text and optionally replace it with other text using the Find/Replace window.

Find and replace text:

  1. Choose the Edit Find/Replace menu item while focus is on a Web page or on a MiniWeb view.
  2. Type the characters to search for in the Find What box at the top.
  3. Type the characters to replace these in the Replace With box underneath.
  4. Optionally select one or more of the following Search Options:
    Whole Words Checking this box makes the match find only whole words that match the text you type. When this box is not checked, AOLpress matches your text even if it is a part of a word. For example, if you check this box, searching for "cat" will match "cat" only, and not words like "catalog".
    Match Case Checking this box makes the match case-sensitive. When this box is not checked, finds matches that use either upper or lower case letters. For example, if you check this box, searching for "ZIP" matches "ZIP", but not "zip" or "Zip".
    Search Backward Checking this box makes AOLpress search backward through the page beginning at the cursor position. The default is to search forward. (Available when searching a single page only.)
    Search HTML Checking this box makes AOLpress search the HTML instead of the text you see on the page. You can use this to search for attribute values in addition to normal text. (Available when searching a MiniWeb only.)

  5. Use the buttons on the right to control the search.
    Find /
    Find Next /
    Wrap & Find
    Finds and selects the next match. The Search Backward field controls whether this is the next match in the forward or backward direction. After the search reaches the end of the page or MiniWeb, this button says "Wrap & Find".


    Closes the window.
    Replace Replaces the current selection with the characters in the Replace With box.
    Replace All Finds and replaces all the characters that match in the entire page.
