Hope you’re doing well and having a great week so far!
I know it’s been a few weeks since my last post here on the blog but I have been posting to the youtube channel, if you’ve missed the recent videos or haven’t subscribed yet, you can check it out here.
In this week’s Tip post and video, I walk through exactly how to use the built in find & replace tool within AutoCAD. It’s just like many word processors and can seriously save us a lot of time when editing/updating drawings!
You can use it to for a ranges of cases including finding a specific word or text string throughout an entire drawing, including xrefs and layouts/paper spaces, as well as automatically replace text based on what you find, giving you the ability to quickly find and replace outdated drawing references, detail numbers or product specs to name a few.
It really is a great tool to know and I’m sure you’ll like it!
Check out the video below:
That’s all for today’s quick tip, I hope you all were able to take something away from it and able to add a new tool to your CAD toolbox!
