Our Review:

The most powerful free program in this class is Replace Text (formerly BK ReplaceEm). It will carry out replacements in individual files, in a group of selected files, in a set of files determined by a file mask, or indeed every file in a folder.

Replacement can be by text string or by using regular expressions. You can even replace text within a nominated range such as html tags. The interface is both logical and powerful, but it does take a little getting used to, so read the Help file before using. Power users need look no further than this product.

Replace Text was reviewed by on based on version 2.2.


I noted there is a specific disclaimer on the site, "Please note that Replace Text is no longer supported and has known problems with some Windows 7 installations."
However, there is no further information on what those issues are. (I am using Win 10) and noting the recent review date (March 25 of this year) was curious to see if this great app is functional on current systems (preferably before installing)

Tested and it worked for me in Windows 10.

Very disappointed, am now looking for a replacement program as I generate website files daily.
