How to replace multiple individual texts/words in a file with just one text/word


If a drawing contained a number of different words, like, for example, "Day", "Month" and "Year", and these each appeared a number of times in the drawing, is there a method to select all of these words and replace them with one word, for example "Time"...?

Steps to Accomplish

  1. Start the Find/Replace Text tool, to do this go to Edit > Find/Replace Text
  2. Turn on the option 'Use Regular Expressions'
  3. In the Find Field enter the following: .*
  4. In the Replace Field, enter the word to be used to replace all existing texts in the model
  5. Click Find or Replace All and all words/texts should be replaced by the chosen word
