There doesn't appear to be an option for find and replace text. Sometimes I receive large amounts of transcribed interviews. These transcriptions can contain consistent errors - e.g. spelling errors or misinterpretations of contextual/foreign terms. But there is no way of changing all those terms at once - I have to go through a find each incident. If I do this during coding I have to keep toggling the "edit" function on and off, as well as the coding ribbons. 


Please add a "find and replace" function! It is a very simple addition and is another surprising omission from the Mac version of NVivo. It is another example of how the small things make the workflow in NVivo clunky.
