  • Is there a way to do a find and replace? In the events sheet, lets say there is a set text to global variable "count 1". If I copy that Events Sheet to another, the Global Variable would go from "Count 1 to Count 2, but all the references to the GV would be 1. Anyway to do.. find "Count 1" replace with "Count 2" thx

  • Not as such.

    You maybe able to do it a hacky way by doing a "Save as project...". Which saves it as multiple files. Close C2. Then opening the event sheet xml with a text editor. Do a search and replace. Save and open in C2.

    P.S If I helped you then please return the favor and support me by liking me on facebook ->

  • You should be able to see it. Look at my example.

    As you can see my GV is called GlobalVar and is created at the top and then specified in a "set text" action.
