FEATURES

Organize Find/Change Queries Into Sets
MFC allows you to organize Find/Change queries into Sets (lists).  Easy to use, the user interface enables drag and drop of different types of Find/Change queries into Sets.

Execute Multiple Find/Change Queries
Rather than executing individual Find/Change queries, MFC gives you the ability to perform Multiple Find/Change queries in a single operation. As a safeguard, it supports undo “Change All” to undo all the changes or undo by individual Find/Change query.

Export, Import and Share Sets
MFC has the ability to allow workgroups to share Sets and Find/Change queries. Sets and Find/Change queries can be exported into self–contained files (xml) for other users to import or share. 

Rename and Delete Find/Change Queries
MFC complements the Adobe InDesign (or InCopy) Find/Change Editor, by adding simple one-step Rename and description properties to Find/Change queries, as well as providing an easier way to delete Find/Change queries.

ACTIVATION

After purchasing MFC through our Web store you need to activate the plug-in using the serial number you will receive via email. You should keep the serial number in case you ever need to re-activate MFC (if you change computers, or reinstall the operating system, for example).

To activate MFC you need to enter the serial number in the trial version of the software. The trial version will become a full working version. The trial version can be downloaded from this page. If you have ordered multiple copies in a single order, you will receive a single serial number that will activate as many copies you have purchased.

The license is computer based, which means that you can activate Adobe InDesign and InCopy CC if they are installed in the same computer.

After purchasing MFC, you will need to wait about 20 minutes for the activation servers to be update. You might get the error message "Unknown Serial Number" if the activation servers are not updated.

2 - Choose Window > Multi-Find/Change, to show the panel.
3 - Click the Activate/Deactivate button and then enter or paste the serial number.
4 - Click the Activate button.
