Find & Replace Custom Properties
« on: June 11, 2009, 10:03:22 AM »

I'm trying to find a way where I can find and replace text in a custom properties field using Visio 2007. Using Find I can search for text in the field but using Replace there is no option to search in custom properties. Is there any way I can do this.

Hi sssr,

A few ideas:

1. If you are handy with VBA, you could write a bit of code to search.
2. Somebody has probably made some utility for free or for sale somewhere that does this, but I don't know off hand.
3. Save the file in Visio's xml format (.vdx), then open in a text editor or xml editor and do a search and replace.
