Text Search Inside a GDL Object

Aaron Bourgoin
Advisor

Is there a way to search for text inside GDL objects without opening them?

 

I have mistakenly made a scripted MVO script. (Library Global Settings file) that I want to purge from the library, but can't find it to delete it. If I could locate the string of text that it assigns a title, I could purge it.

 

In similar fashion:

 

I also want to find an object that has a macro that creates and inserts a fill type (or line type) into my attributes that I don't want.

I don't think it is possible to do that with Archicad's Text Search.

In a similar situation, I would probably use the LP_XMLConverter tool to export the whole library into a folder, into XML files, and then I would be able to search the contents of XML files in my op. system. Then I could find the Library Part that uses that text.
