|UltraEdit and UEStudio give you the ability to perform a find or replace through one or more files. There are multiple configuration options which allow you to target specific file types, project files, directories of files, and more. Using the available tools, you can customize your find or find/replace to quickly make changes to text or code in a directory of files, or to locate a unique string within a single file buried in hundreds of other files, and even find files that do not contain a specific string. |
Find and replace, find in files, and replace in files
All of the search features covered here may be accessed under the "Search" menu.
You can search your open file by selecting the "Find" option from the "Search" menu. Once you select this option, a dialog box will prompt you for your search terms. Here you can also specify other "find" options. To quickly search, type in what you are looking for and press "Find Next."
The first found string will be highlighted in the file while the Find dialog stays open. You can then step through all occurrences of the string in the file by pressing F3, which will take you to the next instance found. Press CTRL+F3 to return to the previous instance.
You are given several options in the find dialog that you can use to customize your search.
Match Whole Word Only
UltraEdit will not restrict a search to matching whole words only. This option restricts the search to whole words only. Whole words are words separated, on both sides, by a space.
