So let's say I have 100 text events using face graphic JohnDoe.png, each one using an expression cell (1, 2, 3, etc). Is there any way to replace all of those instances with BobHeart.png and retain the cell number?

I can't just save my new image as JohnDoe.png because the filename specifies the number of expressions for a bust plugin. (So in reality, I need to change John[Exp1x5].png to John[Exp1x7].png since I added expressions, but I thought that would be more confusing.)

If anyone has figured this out, please let me know! Otherwise I'll start replacing them manually.

you'll need a multifile text editor and run a search and replace of the strings on all json files of the project.
there are several editors that can do this, I use textpad for example.

Thank you! Textpad worked perfectly.

Is it interesting to get more backstory on villains? A key moment in their past, their childhood, or maybe something that shows they've always been that way? To see or not to see?
