If you selected several items by clicking on them (red highlight box appears around thumbnail) you will also have an option to perform a find and replace on the selection you have made.
Next, select a field and begin typing the value(s) you are searching for in the box to the right. Then in the box below, type the value(s) you want to replace with and click the Find button.
Find and Replace is case sensitive, so make sure you are using the correct case when typing in a search value.
The found values will display in the box at the bottom of the window, highlighted in yellow. For each value found, you will have the option to Find Next (skip to the next value), Replace/Find (replace the current value and continue to the next) or Replace All (replace all values found).
When there are multiple found values in a field, the active value will be highlighted yellow and the additional values will be highlighted in blue. Use your cursor to click the value you want to replace.
