There is already a find option, but how about a replace option too? For example, the apostrophe character. Sometimes people use ` and sometimes people use ' and other people use other ascii characters for it. Personally, I prefer '. Anyway, there is no way for me to change all the ` to ' in Jaikoz. So a find-replace would be killer (not just for apostrophe characters, but for any character in a particular column).

Also, have you ever tried Magic File Renamer? I have to be honest, the only reason why I don't solely use that is because your program has smart-matching and the musicbrainz lookup and MFR doesn't. But other than that, Magic File Renamer has some really badass features. You can build renaming functions and all kinds of stuff. The reason I bring it up is I was curious if you were considering building that type of functionality into Jaikoz? I would really recommend checking it out if you have not.

I agree, I had hoped to add a Replace and a Find All in the last release but had a couple of issues, should be in next release.

Thanks for heads up, Ive never heard of it and it looks like it is no longer being developed. I expect Jaikoz will have most of this functionality - I am certainly looking at allowing users to use powerful regular expressions for various tasks.

MFR is available on http://www.tucows.com/preview/195777

Also it would be great if one could highlight a certain number of fields and then perform the find and replace on this selection. at the moment that does not seem to work.
