I made a book in Illustrator, and I would like to replace a word with another word (e.g "Bread" into "Rice"). If I was using MS Word, I could simply Ctrl+H and do a word replace. How about in Adobe Illustrator?

1 Answer 1


Go to "Main menu > Edit > Find and replace".

It's exactly the same as other applications, just without the keyboard shortcut (it's a less commonly used feature, and those keys are used for other things: CTRL+F for Paste in Front, CTRL+H for Show/Hide Edges).

Incidentally, making a book in Illustrator is quite unusual. It's more common to assemble the book in InDesign and use Illustrator for illustrations, which are then placed into the InDesign file.

  • ah thank you for the answer... I usually using Illustrator first and then exported to indesign for finalizing. Yeah its quite unusual workflow, because I more familiar with Illustrator tool
