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.

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.

well, i used to have a lot of artboard and i mess up finding the specific text. Finding and "Finding and replacing" functionality on the Adobe Xd would be very handful for million of designers.
Tim Garstman commented
Im using a plugin for this, but this doenst work well combined with multiple artboards, groups and repeating grids. Would be really helpfull to have this functionality in XD. It's a small but powerfull addon.

I just bought a plugin to handle this...
this is a must!

As a work around for finding content (which is not ideal) you can export all art-board's to a PDF single document then search for words.
I needed to change an adress in about 50 screens and it happens quite often! Highly necessary!!
I completely agree. Find and Replace-tool is highly necessary.

This is so crazy that Xd does not have find and find and replace yet.
next update please!
Bryan Fonder commented
The third-party plugins don't cut it for Find and Replace. Help us, Adobe!
Luke Mazza commented
We are unable to fully migrate our prototypes to XD without this feature.
Any large project can't be maintained without text Find and Replace.
I needed to use this feature today.
I would also love this feature!
Wells Packard commented
Find and replace is such a crucial tool that we are dumbfounded that it is missing from Xd.
Andi Galpern commented
I agree, I would love this feature. Especially as a content strategist who works inside XD on all of the time, I'd like to be able to quickly find text on multiple artboards in one file.
It would be GREAT!!
Guthrie Watson commented
I've a lot of screens and not all the text is in reusable elements, this would be a huge time saver.

Would be really nice to get some official news here.

Please, it would be super helpful to have a "Search/Replace" function.
Michael Tardi commented
Hi XD Team,
It would be nice to extend the search function in order to find text inside a particular layer.
For instance :
- In my layers, i have one called "some text" which contains the sentence "Adobe XD is very nice to use."
- I search the word "nice"
- The layer "some text" is highlighted or better the word on the artboard is colored / framed or selected (if it is the only result).
It would be faster to find and replace word or terms in our design or prototypes.
