Mass Find and Replace

When modifying purchased designs, it would be nice to be able to open the css and do a find/replace to make sure and catch all instances of a particular color that you are trying to tweak.

(or maybe this feature is already existing and I just don’t know how to do it).

WOW! That’s a great feature I never knew I wanted until now. Imagine if Webflow had something like swatches from InDesign. Change one of the colors and it changes that color everywhere it’s used. Brilliant!

Using colour classes is a good idea and alternative. At the start of every project I will create them, i.e. ‘bgRed’ (background, for sections), ‘fgGreen’ (foreground, for text) ‘bgBlue’, ‘gradientBlue’… etc. That way I can throw them onto text and so on, then if I update the class it updates everywhere.

It would be a cool feature though, in the case of buying a pre-made theme from a developer who might not use that method…

Cool, never thought of that. I’ll try that on my next new project. Thanks @JoeMillion

No problem - thank you :slight_smile:

Amen to this.
I found this thread because I was desperate looking for a way do to find and replace.

Have thought about it before, and just realized that this was a Wishlist item so thought I will mention that I support this idea. :wink::blush::+1:

Just curious if WF has a “find & replace” function? Like a text editor would have… “Find” a specific element and “Replace” with the new element, style, etc……

That would be awesome!
