Can't seem to do a simple search and replace

Post by Salient »

I am trying to something which should be simple and that is for folder of .html files

Find <!-- saved from url=

That is, find the string and replace it with nothing. I have tried every relevant replace filter and noting is ever found. So, I tried just finding the word "saved" and replacing that with either nothing or with "test" just to see. Again nothing.

I cannot get these replace filters to work with any kind of file or string. Am I supposed to enter anything in the Find box other than the string I am searching like brackets or quotation marks?

Are the HTML files Unicode? Check by putting on in the file grid, then right click and choose 'Analyze file'.

If so, you need to use a Unicode search/replace.

If this doesn't help, please email me the HTML file and your filter.
