Reply to: finding otherprops attributes

Sorry about that (I just re-read the original post, this is a long thread now).

So, no, there is no wildcard support for this particular feature. It would probably be possible to write a script that would allow that and wrap that script in an XFT form if some kind of GUI would be needed (ie: the values you need to find and replace would need to be modifiable by the author of the document and not fixed, which I assume is likely the case).

The idea of allowing wildcards for the element names (and perhaps attributes) in the existing Find and Replace dialog is an interesting one and we will think about that when we are looking at features to implement in the future.
