    My many long years of sad experience have taught me not to do something twice when I can do it once and duplicate it. I am making a symmetrical plr map and I can duplicate and flip+rotate the geometry easily enough. But entities are a different story. I am specifically interested in path_tracks.

    Each entity is named, however, and properly includes the label "red." It seems to me that I can use some sort of find/replace action to replace "red" with "blu." Seems easy enough, right? Is this possible?

    Thanks

    Indeed you can. With the path_tracks you want changing, select them and go to Edit > Replace (or press CTRL+SHIFT+R), there you can tell it to replace 'red' with 'blu' and set so it only changes the selected objects. Also, uncheck 'visible objects only' if it's checked.
