Replacing Into A Different Folder

I have a series of 50 different "master" word .doc templates. I want to find one word that is in all 50 templates (same word in all 50 .doc's) and replace that word with a different word. Here's the rub... I do not want to overwrite the "masters". Instead, I want a different destination. I want to write new files and have them all placed in a different or new folder. That way I can keep the "masters" un-altered. I do not see a way to accomplish this with Advanced Find and Replace Ver. 1.6.0.

Have I overlooked something or does this appware not do that?

Thank you.

example, Abacre Backup) that may copy changed files into specific

Yes, it's added in v2.0. See main menu - Action - Options - Advanced.

I downloaded V2, and I see the text box on the Advanced Options dialog, but it doesn't work. When I exit AFR and restart, the Destination Folder field is no longer populated either. And it's not saved in the .CFG file, and I can't seem to find it in the registry either. Is there a piece I'm missing?

Is this functionality available ?

I got version 2.3 from your site and it does not have the ability to replace into a different folder AND/OR send the backup to a specified folder.

Pls let me know what is missing that I should download ?

We are releasing Advanced Find and Replace v3.0 at the end of
September. This functionality will be available in this version.
(Note: we remove from the forum mentions of any other products).
