Is it possible to save a macro that uses the find & replace dialogue box?
Yes, the button you press in the dialog, while recording a macro, will cause
the window’s current state to be saved (in the macro) with the action, as
opposed to using something like Edit → Find → Find Next, which only put
“findNext:” in the macro (using the current search string).
Lets say I want to save a macro that uses find & replace with a regular
expression to surround any number with “". For example, the macro would
replace any instances of “123" with **123. Is this possible?
1. Edit → Macros
→ Toggle Recording
2. Edit → Find → Find…
3. In find dialog use:
* Find: \d+
* Replace: **$0**
* ✓ Regular Expression
4. Click “Replace All”
5. Edit → Macros → Toggle Recording
6. Edit → Macros → Save Macro…
When you save the macro, you can see how your actions got interpreted and
can make minor edits to the property list in the bundle editor.
