How to identify files and check them in based on a string search?


so I just did a find and replace path across my whole project and I had other changes that were not yet checked in.

I can identify the files by searching for the string I replaced with but I want to then act on just those files as one

big commit.


how to commit only those changes?

Can you undo the replace (using Local History if needed), then move your previous changes to the changelist, then create a new task/changelist, rename the strings and proceed with the separate changelist for just the changes caused by the rename?

I was able to use changelists to solve this problem since it was a relatively small number of files that were changed.
