Here’s a step-by-step guide to using search and replace in Google Docs to make multiple edits quickly in a document.
The find and replace tool is something that may have been used a lot in Microsoft Word, but few of us have tried this feature on Google docs. While cutting, copying, and pasting is a must-have technique when trying to modify something in the document, find and replace saves you a lot more time.
With this feature, you can easily find a particular word or phrase in a document and edit them all at once. It will save you time and be more convenient.
Here are some steps to use search and replace in Google Docs on a computer:
Step 1: Go to Google Docs and open the document you want to edit.
Step 2: Now in the Google Docs menu click on Edit.
Step 3: Now click on Find and Replace.
Step 4: After that, in the text field to the right of Find what, type the word or phrase you want to search for.
Step 5: You can just search with this tool or replace this text with something else.
Step 6: Now enter the replacement text in the Replace with field.
