Complicated WordPipe Issue

Postby danolie » Fri Apr 08, 2005 7:12 am

I have a large document (159 pages, many different sections).

I want to replace some text in the footers. The problem is the text in the footers that I want to replace is in text boxes, and in differetn sections, if that makes sense.

THe footers look like this:

Graphic |textbox with address| |Page number in text box|

I jsut want to change the address.

I have 3 search strings to make things work.

Any suggestions?

When I press replace it just starts processing and never stops.

Hi Dan,

We've already answered your question via email, here is the answer again:

We ran your settings successfully with the attached settings file, although
it was still slow. You needed to use the 'shapes' option, and we turned off
Body and Headers to make it run faster. Your document has 260+ sections, each with 3 footers. It ends up making 11000+ changes.

We're going to make some changes to WordPipe to make it more responsive and not appear to hang with large documents.
