Add a "find and replace" function to Bridge so that if you spot a spelling mistake in 200 image captions they don't need to be altered one by one.

Hi Rick and Paul.

Download the script from:-
www.ps-bridge-scripts.talktalk.net/do...

To install unzip and place this script into the following folder:
Start Bridge
Preferences -Startup Scripts
At the bottom click the "Reveal Button" this will open the folder where the script should be placed.
Close and restart Bridge.
Accept the new script.

To use:-
Select the documents you want to target.
Tools - Find and Replace.

The "Replace" field is where you enter what you want to find
The "With" field is where you enter what you want it to Replace.
N.B. If the "With" field is left blank the characters will be removed.
The Global checkbox will let you replace more than one occurrence in the Description

Hope you find it of use.

Ah, that works. You don't seem to have to do that on the tifs or jpegs. For whatever reason... Thanks!

I have now added a refresh on the selected files, so the changes should now show after running the script Mike.

I just downloaded and tested it and I have to purge the cache after running the find and replace tool, but that's totally fine, it's an easy step. Cheers Paul.
