script to replace text

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am looking to create a script in Vectorworks to replace text throughout my entire document. For example, I may want to replace the phrase "verify in field" with "VIF". Note that this would need to be case sensitive. I am a novice to scripts and could not find anything similar in the VW script library that I could even modify.

I would also appreciate any helpful reference books or website suggestions to learn scripting in Vectorworks. Thank you.

I know this doesn't answer your question per se, but there is a find and replace command in the text menu.

Thanks, Josh. I have been using the find and replace command, but we have hundreds of drawings that need to be updated. Hopefully there is a script that can be developed integrating this command. I found an earlier discussion here about a script for replacing characters, but am not adept enough yet to alter it for replacing words.
