This should be a no-brainer, but I haven't been successful with any syntax jumbling. I've tried about 30 combinations with no luck. Suggestions?

search "" [FontName] replace "" [FontName] fixed
search "" [FontName] non fixed size replace "" [FontName] fixed size
search "" [FontName] 10 non-fixed replace "" [FontName] 10 fixed
etc…

Thanks,
~W

This is ugly, but it is my last resort font replacement script:
///
//source folder "someplace"

//batch process folder
menu item "Document/Data Check/Font Utilities"
check "search for this font"
press "Select" near "Search for this font:"
type raw "B Times Bold"
press "ok"
press "select" near "Replace Font with:"
type raw "Times New Roman"
check "Fixed"
press "ok"
check "Apply Changes to Fonts in Shapes"
press "apply"
press "ok"
//save
//close
///

It calls the Font Utilities menu item and it is quite global.

This worked for me:
 

search [Times New Roman] 14 replace with [Verdana] 8 in staff names

Note that you apparently must supply the font size on both the search and replace fonts, if supplied at all.  I restricted the search/replace to staff names only.  Omit any text such as "" and the script will use the whole text.

This is still not possible in Finale 2014.5. As far as I've found, there is no search/replace syntax in Finalescript that can returns fixed size results that does NOT use GUI scripting.

Thank you, C. Lawrence. Your string worked for me also. Like others' efforts, neither the varying of syntax nor other tweaks had any efficacy. Now that we have something that flys, we might build from your solution. Thanks once more! – mj
