Join David Powers for an in-depth discussion in this video Advanced find and replace in a specific tag, part of Dreamweaver CC New Features.
- [Instructor] One of the most powerful aspects…of Dreamweaver's Find and Replace panel…is the ability to update a specific tag.…Let's say, for example,…you've just completed building a website…and you realize you've forgot to add…the Viewport meta tag to every page.…The Advanced tab of the Find and Replace panel…makes fixing this a breeze.…To launch the Find and Replace panel,…go to the Find menu and select Find and Replace in Files,…or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+F…on Windows, Command+Shift+F on a Mac.…
That opens the Find and Replace panel.…It remembers the previous search that you did.…We don't want the Basic tab this time,…it's the Advanced tab that we want,…and if you used the previous version of Dreamweaver,…you'll recognize this as the specific tag search option,…and it works exactly the same as before.…I'm going to search the Entire Current Local Site,…and we need to select the tags that we want to search for.…The meta tag for the Viewport is in the head,…so we need to look for the head.…
We can either use the drop down menu…
