Search and Replace

Search and replace can be used to replace all instances of a keyword with another form of text. To bring up the “Search and Replace” tool, use Ctrl+h while focused in the editor.

Note

If you are using an alternate keyboard shortcut theme, your shortcut might be different.

Enter the search text in the first text entry. Enter the replacement text in the second text entry.

Tip

The replacement text may contain “regex backreferences” such as \1 and others. See the g_regex_replace documentation for more information.

Select “Replace” to replace the next match or “Replace All” to replace all matches.
