About Finding and Replacing Text

You can easily find and replace text with the FIND command

To search for and replace text, use FIND. Replacement is based on text content only;
character formatting and text properties are not changed.

When searching for text in a 3D environment, the viewport will temporarily change
to a 2D viewport so that text isn’t blocked by 3D objects in your drawing.

With FIND, you can use wild-card characters in your search.
