Astoria Search, augmented by Apache Lucene, provides a powerful interface for locating content. You can search for content strings, for specific elements, for specific elements within a specific context (parent, child, sibling relationships), XML metadata, Astoria metadata, version notes, authors, dates and more.

Once you’ve found what you’re looking for, you can drag it into your editing environment, or perform other actions directly on the object.

You can run a “replace” operation on the items returned by an Astoria Search. Astoria Global Substitution gives you a starter-set of ten filter and replace operations, which cover the most common search-and-replace use-cases. Astoria Global Substitution also lets you run any operation in “trial” mode, so you can see what the results will be without making any permanent changes.
