    Don't waste your time getting this app! Search results come back with extra files not matching the Content Pattern used. Example: Do a search for this content pattern "file.name", and FAR returns all files containing the text "file/name". Now that can really mess your system up.

    No live preview, 90' app interface design, no search in results only, no multiple batch replace

    Great! Saved me from a screw up I made. Made a dumb mistake on all the pages of a site. Just had to change one word in many pages. Worked like a charm. Thanks so much! PS I had to rate support and I did not need it, so I gave it a 5 anyway.

    The only "find and replace" tool I have found which ... * Does not corrupt Windows files * Lists files before changing them It can also insert multi-line replacements. In all, a fantastic program, and an essential part of everybody's tool kit. Thank you. Notes for any future upgrades. - Needs a Windows installer, or you need to copy a shortcut to the start menu - Only the start of the directory path is shown, however it is usually the end which is more useful - Can be slow if 1000's of files in the directory and its sub-directories. Tested with "Windows XP SP3". (regular expressions not tested)
