    I've hit a snag, I'm looking to replace a line in thousands of files with a several page chunk of text. The replace window seems to have a limit, is there a way to get around this?

    I'd use a windowless tool like sed for such a job.
    TextFX's Ctrl-R Quick Find/Replace dialog will give you space for multiline search and replace texts, but you need to operate on each file separately, perhaps not what you want.
