Plugin: Search and Replace

This plugin adds a simple "Search & Replace" function to the Markdown editor.


A lot of users (myself included) have been looking for a way to search and replace text within Joplin, instead of relying on an external editor (such as VSCode). See this forum post.

I hope, this will be useful for some of you. I'd love to hear feedback, questions, and bug reports.

Cheers! <3


Thank you for creating this.

I have installed it into my Joplin on Windows but I can't figure out where it is. Old eyes, maybe.

On edit: I see it now - I have to switch to the markdown editor first. I usually use the wysiwyg editor.

Ok so... I just found out that the WYSIWYG editor actually has a built-in "Find and Replace" (Ctrl+F):
At least in Joplin Pre-release.


Cool. But at least yours has regular expressions, and that can really be useful at times.

@FelisDiligens, many folk never use the WYSIWYG editor, and your plugin for the Markdown Editor will still be important to them :slight_smile:
