I have a Google Doc with tons of hyperlinks within various text strings throughout the document. All the links have the same root URL (say, my.oldsite.com). Recently the site changed their root URL to my.newsite.com and now I need to change all the links to the new root. So I want to FIND 'my.oldsite.com' and REPLACE with 'my.newsite.com'. The built-in Find and Replace is not working for me, hoping someone knows a way.
There is no way to do it natively in Google Docs. Maybe you should use a Docs add-on that could do it.
This add-on allows you to do it (Link URL and Set Link URL) but it is not free, though it is only $5: Advanced Find & Replace
I have found a way to handle with this.
First, delete the format by selecting the range you want, right-click on the selection and click the remove link option
Then you can make your replacement
And finally, you can use a link with a proper format and copy and paste the format and apply it to your selection (this last step, if you want that your links are underlined and blue)
