Is it not possible to change specific font (i.e. Calibri 12 Bold) to i.e. Heading 1 style? Is it not possible to change other fonts than the default fonts (my document contained Monteserrat font, could not change/choose...).

Wasn't finding specific version for Google slides, so tried this. Some formatting changes worked, such as bolding, italicizing. Anything involving selecting/replacing colored text didn't work.

Tried to get it to run on an already open Doc and did not succeed. Cool product but needs to come with instructions other than "Find&Replace>Find&Replace"

Installed this just so I could rate it one star after reading the description and comments because charging to search and replace after the first 30 invocations is so delightfully scummy. I was considering using this since the standard search and replace can handle escape sequences in the input but not the output.

Hi brother, so it's called a trial. One can evaluate the add-on to it's best using 30 attempts. Nothing is free in the world. 6$ is a one time fee and not a subscription. You must realize the difficulty in building a addon. Remember to help someone for a good cause.

I love this add-on, but I am most impressed with the customer service I received! I was having an issue, and when I wrote the developer (Darren) a message through his site, he wrote me an email within 8 hours! He even filmed a short tutorial video showing me how to resolve the issue! I can definitely give this add-on 5 stars now! My only suggestion is that in the description of the add-on and all of its features, perhaps the developer could add a list of formulas commonly used (I have never been formally trained in tech, so I learn everything by looking it up on the internet). For example, I looked up online how to change the formatting of everything within brackets. \[.*\] However, this would end up changing the formatting on ALL of the text between two different sets of brackets. Darren helped me by providing me with the correct formula for this \[[a-zA-Z]*\] If not for his assistance via email. I don't know how I would have found this formula. I Googled all over the place looking for it! So a list of useful formulas and what they do would be great for people who are not as experienced in technology. Anyway, I now give this add-on a full 5 stars! If you try it and you have ANY issues, just write Darren (through his site), and I'm confident that he will provide you a speedy solution! Thanks for this great tool! It's going to save me SO MUCH TIME!

I use this tool to add links to documents before they are published on a website. To do this, I require the functionality to find a word and replace it with the same word including a link. Advanced Find and Replace to the rescue. Works terrific for this purpose! I couldn't figure out how to find a full word rather than if it is included in another work ("amp" within "amplified" etc), so I wrote Darren for support. IMMEDIATE REPLY!!! Outstanding. BTW - just put a single space on either side of the search text and it will ensure that it only finds a full word. Recommended highly for functionality and support. Cheers!
