Find and replace in word 2010

Postby aprengo » Wed Mar 15, 2017 10:01 pm

I would like to find strings of more of 254 characters.
In word 2010 is possible ?

Using regular expressions ?
using wild cards ?

I want to insert and replace strings longer of 254 chs.
How can I do that ?
best Regards

Yes, you can do this with a word wildcard like this:

Code: Select all

?{254,}


Why do you need to do this?

To replace blocks of text.

I think the field find is limited to 255 chrs. , but the replace don't

Can I propose in the replace field a paragraph ? (several lines of text...)

Best Regards

Replace you can add whatever you like.

With WordPipe, the find text can be longer than 255.
