Searching and replacing text

You can search and replace text with the Search dialog by choosing Find from the Edit menu or clicking the Search button Search button. You can also use the keyboard shortcut: Ctrl-f.

This dialog enables you to search or replace text using different criteria:

To initiate the search operation, click the Confirm button at the bottom of the dialog box. If Amaya finds the searched-for string, it is selected and the document is positioned so as to make this string visible. You can then search for the next instance of this string by clicking the Confirm button again. If the string is not found, Amaya displays a "Not found" message next to the Confirm button.

Search or replace can be abandoned at any time by clicking the Cancel button.

Replacement operations can be undone by choosing Undo from the Edit menu, or by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-z.
