Using Find and Replace To Edit Outlines

The Outline List supports a dedicated Find And Replace function, that is accessed by control-clicking, or right-clicking, the list and selected the Find And Replace menu item. This brings up the Find And Replace dialog for outlines:

This dialog allows you to search for words/expressions in the list of outlines and to make individual and/or global substitutions. Searches and replacements can be either literal (the text entered in the input fields is used as is for searching and replacing) or regular expressions (the input is parsed and interpreted, which allows for very powerful searches and substitutions.)

You can also batch indent/outdent outlines based on the matches. To do so, select the desired action from the bottom popup menu, enter an appropriate query in the Find field, and click the [Apply] button.

The regular expression engine is based on ICU regular expressions.
