How to find * and replace with X


Recommended Posts

I have a drawing that has texts as * and would like to replace with X using find/replace command. The AutoCAD understand or gets confused with * as wildcard and replaces all entities with X. Any ideas?


Using AutoCAD 2008.

Please expand FIND's dialog box (there should be a button with an arrow pointing down in its left-bottom corner) and un-check the Use Wildcards option.

Ooops, seems that the dialog was changed in new versions.


Please try to precede the wildcard with an apostrophe reverse-quote or a backslash and check if this aproach helps.
