Recently I read a contract that contained scattered search-and-replace glitches. In attempting to remove identifying information, someone had searched for one of the party-name defined terms and replaced it with something generic, with unintended consequences.
I can’t tell you the exact change they made, but it’s as if they had replaced Signa with Vendor and had created as a byproduct scattered instances of the nonwords “Vendorture” and “deVendorte”.
To avoid that sort of thing, make your search-and-replace case sensitive, so it picks up Signa and not signa. And then search for glitches caused by instances of “signature” with a capital “S”—in other words, search for Vendorture. You can use other strategies too.
I invite you to tell us about classic search-and-replace glitches you have encountered.
