BBEdit Multi-file Find and Replace

August 22, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

The BBEdit grep based find and replace is a powerful tool. It really shows its strength when working on an entire folder of text files.

Create a new BBEdit Disk browser:

Open the multi-file search panel:

Enter the search and replace terms and BBEdit will search every file and return a hit list. Alternatively, the substitution can be performed automatically.
