Find & Replace

The magnifying glass icon opens the Find & Replace pop-up. You can use it to find a string of text or code from any part of your notebook, and it will show up highlighted. If there are multiple occasions of the same string, you can cycle through them using the arrows.

You can replace the found string with a new one by writing a replacement in the Replace field. The Replace button replaces only the currently highlighted string, while the All button replaces all the instances of it in the notebook.
