That is an interesting solution. Thanks.
However I know from my own experience that this isn't really the same thing. As the headline says I am looking for a "convenience" feature. Sure it is possible to take the time to recreate an object and ALL of its dozens of instance variables and other properties then do the object replace, but that is too time consuming to be considered "convenient".
I guess "cloning" the object would make it faster, but every time I use the clone tool the settings on my behaviors go back to default...so then I have to manually "clone" those.
Before I would do that I would just open up that XML file and do the replace there... much faster... but also not really a feature built into the tool either.
Thanks for the idea though.
