I finally got a chance to run some very batch basic search-and-replace operations to get a whole bunch of files updated. I needed to turn a copyright notice from 2015 to 2016 and this program worked beautifully, taking about 8 seconds per ~200k DOCX file. Part of me can't believe this is freeware, as that functionality will save companies a lot of time and money.

I've been testing out a lot of text replacement/automation tools, and was pleased to come back to this one's available preview and hide functions. They're very unique and very helpful.

It's somewhat crashy on Win10x64, but given some of the unique functionality, that might be worth the trouble.
