In the next step, enter the value to Find field. Value must be entered exactly like value to replace existing in the files to be processed. Search operation is case-sensitive, spaces and their position is important as well.

If in the Replace field value has been entered, after run the process, application will replace every found string in file, matching to the value in to Find field. If you leave Replace field blank, every occurrence of the value from the Find field will be erased from processed files, listed in Paths And Names list. To start processing, click the button or select Run Process from the File menu. Start of the process must be confirmed. To see the file content, highlight the file you want to see, click right button, and select option Show File Content from the contextual menu. File content will be shown in other window.

✔ - file modified successfully.
✖ - value found, but file can't be modified (ex.: incompatibility string encoding).
