Find and Replace

Hi, how can I do a “Find and Replace” just like any editor?
Normally, I can do it under some selection from the menu bar of editor. But Obsidian doesn’t even have menu bar. Or is it hidden by default?

Thank you

thank you

You can also map “Search & replace in current file” to a hotkey (if it isn’t mapped by default. On my computer it is set to ctrl-h.)

You can also access it by using Ctrl-P or Cmd-P to open the Command Palette.

and (but) we still can’t find & replace across a whole vault, or even a whole folder, is that right?

I would love to know this as well. Do we have a way to find and replace across the whole vault?

As far as I know (without any knowledge of 3rd party plugins that might do it), there is no way to find/replace across an entire vault directly.

Right now, you would have to use a text editor that has that feature, like Sublime Text, Atom, or others. Using Python scripts is another way that I and some others have changed things in vaults as well.
