Is it possible to do a global search and replace in a Chart? It's not obvious if it is.

There's a robust search capability in the chart editor, but automatic replacement of text is not possible.

A possible work around is to do the find and replace in the family file, then make the chart. Or if you don't want to modify your family data, make a copy of the family file, make the changes in the new file, and then use it to make your chart.

If you've invested a lot of effort in an existing chart and don't want to redo it, you can still update the boxes from the changed family file.
