Search Function in Scribus

Previous topic - Next topic


Hi there,

is there a way to search a whole document in scribus? I tried it and could only search inside a single textbox.

Best regards,


As far as I know, you can only search within a single text frame within Scribus.

However, if you want to do a big search/replace effort, you could close the Scribus document and open the SLA in a plain text editor. Do the search/replace there, save the document and re-open it in Scribus. It's not a pretty solution but it should work in most simple cases. (You need to be very careful that you don't replace keywords in the XML - which would stop the document from being opened - so make a copy of the file first.)
