Find and Replace

Is there a better way to find and replace a word on all the spaces of Confluence than doing it manually? The version i have is 3.4.2.

Thanks in advance...

I use emacs ( http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/ ). Certainly this can be done with a myriad of other text/programming editors. Share your environment (OS/Version) and I can recommend.

Procedure:

  1. Open the Conf. page in the mark up editor,
  2. Ctrl-A and Ctrl-X to cut the page.
  3. Switch to emacs and paste into a fresh buffer.
  4. Then I can use the powerful search/replace commands there.
  5. Copy it and then switch back to Conf. and paste into editor.

I need something to go through all the spaces and replace a word. I can't do it one by one.

You can find and replace language strings here:

\confluence\WEB-INF\lib\confluence-3.4.6.jar\com\atlassian\confluence\core\ConfluenceActionSupport.properties
