Find and replace all ... Don't do it. Just don't do it!

Note: Never do a "Find and replace ALL" on the word Lance. Ughhh!! I changed a name from Lance to Philip in my WIP. Now I have words like baPhilip, ambuPhilip, gPhilip, vigiPhilip. (Just replace "Philip" with "lance" in the previous words to see what they should be.) So now, thanks to my brilliant idea, instead of editing I'm on a "Find" hunt for any forms of the word lance ...— feeling crazy.

Edit: Oh, and now I've realized I used the name Philip earlier in the story so I have to change it again!!
