Find and Replace

Search the entity names in your model for every occurrence of a specific character, and automatically replace the character with a new one that you specify.

For example, using " . " may cause errors in certain solvers, therefore you may want to replace it with a new character.

  1. In the Abaqus Utility menu, click Find and Replace.
    The Find and Replace dialog opens.
  2. In the Replace What field, enter the character you want to find.
  3. In the Replace With field, enter the character you would like to replace the existing character with.
  4. Set the Entity Type selector to ALL or to a specific entity type.

  5. Optional: If you set the Entity Type selector to a specific entity type, you can activate the selector and select specific entities to perform the find and replace on.
  6. Click Replace.
