Bulk Field Format Change

Not applicable

Hi Guys,

Hopefully one of you can save me several hours.

I have developed a lot of forms in designer.


All text fields I have used are in the Field Format: "Plain Text Only".

Our processes require field formats in the "Rich Text format"

Is there a quick way to do this using find and replace in the xml or something?

I have several thousand text fields in my documents and changing them individually is going to take several weeks.

Please help! there must be a quicker way!

Thanking you in advance

You could write a stylesheet, a program, or edit the xml (find/replace all)  to add the contenttype tag to update the textfield.  It would look like this in the end.  Test to make sure it meets your needs.
