Instructions

Purpose:
The Find Replace Extension allows a Spotfire Analyst quickly find references to Columns and Text in Text area visualizations without opening the Column properties / Text Area controls. Further it allows the user to replace the text / column display name with a different value. The Text search/replace is very helpful for analysis files containing multiple Text Areas across several tabs that contain the specific text that need to be replaced.
