You find and replace text variables in exactly the same way as you would find and replace normal text. You can replace variables with variables, normal text with variables and variables with normal text.
How to find and replace variables
1.Select Find & Replace in the Edit menu.
2.To search for a variable or replace text with a variable enter:
<% + VARIABLENAME + %>
For example if your variable is called DEMOBUILD you would type:
When you insert or replace variables with Find and Replace the variables are not highlighted in the topic text. This is exactly the same as typing in variables manually – the variables are still fully functional, they are just not highlighted in the text. (The highlight is just an editing convenience to make the variables easier to see.)
