Find/Replace alternative

Timo Palokankare 6 years ago • updated by Jon Skinner 6 years ago 0
I have to constantly work with large SQL dump files within my projects and I do a lot of search-replacing. It is in this case a bad thing that the find function is realtime. As the file is gigantic, when I replace for example "localhost" with "my server.com", it takes forever for the written text to even appear in the input fields. I think this is because Sublime constantly narrows down the search as more letters are written in the input field and in these type of situations, when the files are huge, it is not a good thing. I just want to write down what to replace and with what and then press Replace All.
