The command will only do text, but there may be another way to use quick
select or filters to get all of your symbols. Can you post an example file?
No need for the actual file, just the symbol and a few other objects in a
small drawing file with a few of your layers.

Is there a way to use the find and replace cmd with symbols instead of text?
Since they are blocks, this is quite simple. Just redefine the block. If
that is not an option, select the blocks using quick select, then use chprop
to move the blocks to a dummy layer just to keep as a backup. Use
PNTCONV.LSP from http://www.dotsoft.com/freestuff.htm to get the coordinates
of the blocks into a text file. Use the coordinate list to build a script
for inserting the new blocks at the old locations. I prefer to use Excel
because I can just cut and paste directly to the command line after
developing the script in Excel. Excel also allows me to do calculations.
See the attached for an example. When done, freeze the dummy layer or
delete the old blocks and dummy layer.

It's simple really - I'm change a quite a few circles with digits with a
triangle with digits in it. Both of them are in blocks.
