Search and Replace Text

Charisma Riley March 12, 2019

Is it possible to do a Find and Replace within a page? I can't seem to find the tool in the editor. (I am not using the new Fabric Editor.)

Hi @Charisma Riley 

When you are in the edit mode, just press CTRL-F. A new headerbar display and you can search and replace within confluence.

@Dominic Lagger , when I press CTRL+F, the browser find feature opens; nothing opens in the native Confluence Cloud editor.

Hi there, it sounds like you're not in Edit mode, like Dominic says, enter Edit mode and then CTRL-F should display the Search and Replace menu bar directly below the editing tool bar.

I used to make changes page by page, but inevitably I missed something. For example our docs space, at times small changes that are in a bunch of places.

We wanted something easy to use, no scripts or CQL, so anyone can use it. We created Find and Replace by Easy Apps, it's also part of our Space Content Manager.

Hi there, if you ever need to find a replace text across an entire space rather than just a page, you can try ScriptRunner for Confluence Cloud.

 

There's a script you can copy and paste into the Script Console and run. It will find and replace text across all the pages in your space. It is available here: https://library.adaptavist.com/entity/find-and-replace-text-across-space

 

If you want to try ScriptRunner you can get a 30 day free trial in the Marketplace.
