TuneTracker™ QuickTip

Doing Fast Edits to Multiple Logs

This is a great way to make small changes to a number of logs without having to make the changes separately to each of them; a real time saver! Whether they're format clocks, master logs, program logs, or even a mixture of them at the same, you can change them all in seconds with the global search-and-replace function built into StyledEdit, the text editor included in Haiku® and Zeta.


  1. The left and right arrow buttons let you flip through pages and pages of MyShow buttons, all configured exactly as you want them.

Your text will be replaced in all the windows at-once, in a split second. Now just save your files and you're done!

This tip works best with short changes. Do not attempt to use this technique if the text you need to replace is longer than the text box found in the Replace window. Attempting to do so with larger selections of text will not work.

If you need to do global search and replace of larger blocks of text, we recommend you use EditPad, a free, excellent text editor available for Windows.
