Our Review:

Most search and replace utilities are designed for use on text based files such as .txt and .html and must not be used on binary files or proprietary formats such as Microsoft Word.

If you want to search and replace these file types, then check out InfoRapid Search & Replace. It's not as powerful as the best binary editors, but with suitable add-ins it can handle certain Microsoft Office file types plus .rtf and .pdf.

With its built-in converters, you can search and preview HTML and RTF documents in its original layout. All search results are highlighted and a double-click on any other word starts a new search of that word.

According to the developer, up to 999 search result pages and search parameters can be stored in a database, from where they can be recalled via a register.
