Is there a way to search for a word and "change" all mis-spellings at one time?

I've already typed profiles in word docs. Starting years ago we always Capitalized surnames to see easily.  Wikitree I think doesn't approve of that.

In word I can search the word "daybook" and "change all" to "Daybook".  Is that possible somewhere in wiki's formatting?  As the profile database is huge it will be a horrendous job to change each one . . .

Thank you!!  Barb

No unfortunately not, but open the profile in edit , select all, copy and paste to word, do your edits and copy and paste all back

I get it!  Just do the changes in word before I transfer it!

Brilliant, thank you, Louis!!
I do a lot of editing in word myself, especially large files :)
