Find/replace classes


I often reuse symbols and elements from several older projects.

Unfortunately I have not been very consistent in the naming of classes and this often results in a large number of classes in the file, I am working on. I have to track them down by opening every group of every symbol, unless I choose to live with the mess.

Maybe there is a trick here, that I don't know.

If not, I would like a find-& replace function with classes, so I can clean up their numbers.

If I just delete them, they loose their attributes in a way, I cannot control.

Modify layers and Classes under organise.

have you used that at all?

You can map classes into others.

pain is you have to go thru the whole process.

can to it to just a few if my memory is right.

Hope this helps.

This tool could be improved greatly by allowing only some classes to be reassigned and the others untouched.

I agree having to go through the whole list is a pain
