search and replace in files

Post by csscoder » Sat Dec 31, 2011 1:54 pm

I am using CSE for years now, and I keep missing the possibility of searching and replacing within files, like the good old HomeSite did -- and HTMLPad does. Nowadays I use this last one to do just that. I would be nice if I could do it in CSE. Any prospects for that?

Hello,

That is a great feature, but it's not really within the realm of an "HTML Validator" so there are no plans to implement such a feature in CSE HTML Validator.

I would suggest using a 3rd party search and replace program. One I have used before is Replace Text:

Unfortunately it may have issues with Windows 7.

This old topic on the subject may also be of interest:
