Hi,

 

>> anybody can supply the tool

It maybe possible to do something, but I guess you won't get an answer here like "yes, I can", because therefor there is not enough description (especially about what should be replaced, where does the info come from, ....)

And at least .... for free?

I often use the "find & replace" function. I think someone might have these kind of table. it will save me a lot of time.

or  Autodesk should enhance thi function.

So... you want FIND command to handle more than one word at a time, and not the current universal-in-all-applications of one single find&replace. Is that a better description to your wishlist?

 

If it is, that's not an option in AutoCAD OOTB, but you can freely ask in the Customization Forum for help writing a customization that may be closer to your desire while waiting for Autodesk to develop it:

i mean "Find & Replace" text function. in AutoCAD only keep 6 records. if each dwg i have 10 texts need be replace and have 25 drawings. i have to speed a lot of time to type find text and replace text.
