Hi,
I don't find an equivalent to the “external file” manager in soft.

I'm aware of the pre flight window but there there's no batch search and replace…

Exemple, I would like to replace path in about 100+ materials maps

Any hints ?

in a textport you can use opchange

it is VERY powerful and you should read the help and do some test runs in a test file

basically it will search through your file and replace text

eg
opchange myMapOnDisk myNewMapOnDisk

will find all occurrences of myMapOnDisk and replace then with myNewMapOnDisk

read the help
