Sometimes, when you want to do mass search and replace, things get extremely frustrating. So here's a solution:
1) Go to HTML mode in the capsule edit
2) Hit "Tidy HTML" to tidy things up (optional, but makes things much easier for step 4 and 5)
3) Select all and copy
4) Paste into a separate text editor, like Notepad, Editpad, and so on.
5) Do mass search and replace in that. You can even do HTML tag replacements and eliminations. Some editors even do regex expressions.
6) When you're satisfied, copy the content back into the HTML editor in the browser.
7) Hit "update editor" to "save" your new HTML code back to the WYSIWYG editor.
8) Save the capsule, and enjoy the result.

I just started a hub for the first time using the New Text Editor. I inserted the text, saved unpublished and then exited the page. I went back to the page and I was shocked at all the words that had run together. This was Not the case when I inserted the text. I have even checked my copy I used to...

I know we are all connected via some means nearly all the time, but I personally would write more HubPages if I were to have access to a 100% HubPages sanctioned offline editor. I'd like to be able to write the text content of a page offline. Anybody have any thoughts on this?? I...
