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.

Yeah, please sort this functionality out ASAP.
Mind-boggling the amount of basic features XD lacks. It really does create the impression Adobe doesn't care about their own user's experience.
Very frustrating that this is not yet implemented. Adobe, please instead of working on other fad apps that few people use, please focus on improving the well used ones that you have. We need these products to be better to save us time and to be able to do our jobs better. Thank you.

after 5 years you useless hacks at adobe still havent implemented this most basic feature available in all of your other programs? this app is supposed to make User experience design faster, yet you refuse to implement one of the most fundamental and basic functionality features? AFTER 5 years?! just pathetic adobe, another day another new low. you want to justify renting us this over priced crap? LISTEN TO YOUR USERS REQUESTS!

Please make this a thing, finding words across the XD file in the beginning stages of website build would be extremely helpful. Especially when showcasing to design to the client that may be a templated site and you need to find and replace keywords.

Doesn't make sense that this feature isn't available yet!
Adobe, you already can highlight all components who shares the same color in the canvas, we are sure that you can implement the text find and replace option, please!

Hi Adobe Guys, At least let us know the major issues implementing this. Some plugin developer might want to take up that challenge...

April 2016... Has anything changed/updated yet?
Please add find and replace function. This is basic and necessary. Adobe you can do this!

We really need this functionality. Its very important when you work with 50+ art-boards.
Seriously? A basic function like this one, that has been asked for 5 years, and it's still not implemented????
What are you waiting for?
This is a basic need for any text-driven application. It must be high on the priority list. Come on Adobe!!!
I just tried out plugin 'Text toolbox' and it works quite well. Only drawback is you can't just select an artboard/several artboards. You have to select the text fields directly on one artboard.
Same request, since 2016.
I'm looking for alternative solutions now, did anyone try the following plug-ins?
The free version is limiting and I can't properly test it. I can't find text inside a component, but it works for regular text, groupped text, across multiple artboards (by selecting the artboards). It also does case sensitive or exact match but couldn't test in the free version.
The plug-in is free. I was able to find and replace text (case senstive only) on multiple artboards (by selecting the artboards), but doesn't work for text in a component.
