Replacing hyperlinks (sorry for being dumb)

Postby paradilly » Thu Jun 19, 2014 8:11 pm

Hi All,

Sorry I must be missing something.
We are looking to purchase an app to replace hyperlinks in word documents and Wordpipe looks ideal however I cannot for the life of me work out how to use it.

I am testing with a word document simply doing a wildcard search for docx in the hyperlink but it doesn't seem to find it, I must be doing something fundamentally wrong.

What I am trying to achieve is to search a folder full of word documents and replace all the hyperlinks, some_link.doc with http://mywebsite.com/some_link.doc
Any tips would be much appreciated and we will of course buy the software.

Thanks in advance.

Which kind of wildcards are you trying to use?

Within hyperlinks, Normal Search is normally checked, and hence any search/replace will be an exact match.
If you choose a Search Type of perl patterns, then search for

Code: Select all

.*
, and replace with

Code: Select all

http://mywebsite.com/$1

If you choose a Search Type of EasyPattern match, then search for

Code: Select all

[ 1+ char ]
, and replace with

Code: Select all

http://mywebsite.com/$1


If you need more help please let me know.
