Replace Groups/Objects/Stencils? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

I was wondering if there was a way to name objects on the diagram so that you could do a global replace with a new object.

Example: My initial design started off with a wireframe that had preliminary dimensions, nomenclature, order, etc.

The final design is very similar, but the nomenclature has changed, the order of items in the nav, some of the details.

I'd like there to be a way for me to find every instance of design1 and replace with design2 at the same x/y coordinates

While you can't easily replace in the way you want, you might be able to use the Canvas: Selection Inspector to filter and select en masse the objects you need to change, then apply whatever styling (fill, stroke, etc.) is desired

Hope that helps,
"Vroom! Vroom!!"
