script-driven search & replace utility available?

Anyone aware of an existing utility which can look-up search & replace items working from a user-defined csv script file, and be started from a one-click macro button. Sure would be useful but having difficulty finding one.

  • How about spell check with a custom dictionary? just thinking out loud : )

  • Thanks Daniel - I thought that was THE fix at first, & will be great for expanding my in-the-field abbreviations into proper text labels  ....But SPELL isn't checking attributed text nested within blocks the way FIND does unfortunately. 

  • Awe too bad, anyway, you can probably fine something similar at the Swamp.org.. maybe this one

  • From the better late than never department... I wrote a commercial tool for this for AutoCAD - https://www.CADreplace.com - ping me if you want me to hurry up and port it to BricsCAD. It currently uses CSV files for the search / replace list, it will also use Excel in the near future.

    Port it and show it to our Australasia BricsCAD Conference in Brisbane next year!

    I saw you demonstrate CADreplace at our BricsCAD Roadshow earlier this year. A very powerful application, lots of potential.
