Question Replace multiple strings by one same string at once


Hi all. I want to replace all the "[A-Z]." and "table" into "cup" at once, for example. Is that possible to do this by using the wildcard once by somehow combining these 2 standards together? I tried "[[A-Z]. table]" but it doesn't work. Thanks~

The "[A-Z]." looks like a wildcard expression that would match all capitals followed by a period. Is that what it's supposed to be, or is it literal text? In any event, you can't combine both expressions into a single Find/Replace.

Yeah. Now I know that. I simply combined the 2 replacing process in a macro.
