Similarity XT is a search-and-replace engine that gathers items sharing one or more similar attributes and applies global changes to any of the matches found. Similarity XT's power comes from being able to construct limitless search queries with conditions and restrictions. For example, find items where the color is red, shade is less than 50%, and frame is not solid.To create a search query, choose and combine any of the 50 attributes available with conditionals such as IS, IS NOT, and IS GREATER THAN, among others. Similarity XT returns all the matches found at once, showing in advance how many and which items match the search query. Make global changes to some or all of these items with a click of the mouse. No other search engine gives this much control, speed, and flexibility.Similarity XT works this way: select an item with one or more attributes to search for; once items with the designated attributes are found, any changes made to the original item will be recorded; then in a single step, apply any of these recorded changes to the items found.Similarity XT finds all items matching the search criteria immediately. For each entry, see what kind of item it is (box, line, or table cell), its page, and the number of changes performed to that item so far.Select which items to mark for global changes and limit the changes to, say, pages one through five only, or perhaps experiment with changes to a few items before implementing a global change.Optionally show an item found in the search and view all the attributes currently applied to that item.Once similar items are gathered, Similarity XT automatically records changes made to the original item. For example, change the background color of the original item, and the color attribute will be added to the recorded changes list. Simply select which of those recorded changes are to be applied to the items found, press a button, and Similarity XT does the rest.Available attributes (including text, picture, line, and trap):•
