Find and Replace - Text
It would be great to have a generic "find and replace" inside the edit menu like most text editors have. What would be even better is if you could select the find and replace function to use the current art board, or all art boards. This is super helpful if you're mocking up redundant content that has a slight name change between screens.

Please please please add this to roadmap. The plugins that propose to do this are horrible.

Caleb Kingcott commented
This feature is a must. I'm spending too much time replacing placeholder text manually at the moment
need this Feature !
Jens Winther commented
I too would really appreciate this feature - working with teams where changes happen that affect multiple artboards its tedious to manually edit every instance of a simple word change
Troy Havelin commented
Really Really need this feature. The add on plugin dose not function
Need this feature. PLEEEEEZ
Morgan Caldbeck commented
We do need spell check, I agree. To some extent though you can “find and replace” text by using components. If you create a button, make that a component and then edit the text, the text on all instances of that component will change to match. Hopefully that helps!

Spell check, text finder and re-placer (like other apps have ie Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver)
How many votes do we need? Come on ADOBE!

How the heck is search and replace not in here yet??

"Find & Replace". Unbelievable that such a basic function is not in the menu. It may be the only Adobe application that does not have it.

I do agree! Would be great during translation to have "find and replace" tool to keep consistency. And save us a lot of time.
Tim Moyer commented
Please add this feature! It would literally save me over an hour here and I would have more QA assurance.
Other things I could be doing with that hour:
Writing notes of encouragement to colleagues and friends
Sending a care package to friends in college
Playing games with neighbors
Volunteering at non-profit down the street.
It's in the best interest of humanity that you add this feature!

It would be really helpful to have a simple find/replace tool for text. I haven't found any way to easily do this and I think it should be something that's built in; am I missing something? The functionality I want is to be able to simply search for all instances of a word or phrase, such as "hello", and replace all instances with another, such as "goodbye". This would mirror the functionality of the Find/Change tool in InDesign.
I realise that this has been requested before in 2016 but nothing seems to have been done about it. If this feature already exists or if there's an appropriate plugin please could somebody point me in the right direction.
