The Find & Replace function for text can also locate and replace references to graphics files in your entire project. This can be very useful if a graphic that you have used over and over again in your entire project needs to be replaced quickly!
This function only replaces the file names in the references to the graphics files in your topics. It does NOT change the actual graphics files or their names!
1.Make a note of the exact names of the graphics files you want to find and replace.
2.Select Find & Replace in Write > Editing.
3.Select the In Image Filenames option in the Find Where section of the dialog.
4.Use the other options in the dialog to define the scope of your search. See Find & Replace Text in the Reference section for details.
This function only searches for entire graphics file names. Wildcard characters are not supported. This means you must enter the entire name, including the dot and the file extension.
There is a quicker way to do this if the name of the graphics file you want to replace is not important:
•Just overwrite the original graphics file in your project graphics directory with the updated or different graphic, so that the new graphic is in the same location and has the same name as the old graphic.
Help+Manual always checks the size of graphics when it loads them so this also works with graphics that have different dimensions. The two graphics must both have the same format, however! (You cannot use this method to replace a JPG with a GIF graphic, for example.)
