I am trying to change text in hundreds of drawings. What I have is a line of text say "the brown fox" and I need to change it to "the black dog". I have probably 1500 drawings I need to do this in. I am not versed in scripts of lisp and was looking for some help. I know the ACAD commands to do this but could use some help in developing a script file to batch this. ANy help would be greatly appreciated.
Check to see if you have "Search only" checked under the "Replace with" field.
Also, be sure to check the Options page for what kinds of text objects may be changed.
Since you have huge number of drawings (1500) to be corrected, as an alternative you can try the another free utility which runs without opening the drawing to do the same task quicker than opening and editing it.
The tools is available to download from Autodesk Exhange Apps BatchInDatabase
