Requesting the ability to find and replace directly in a Word document and Powerpoint file. Today, the find and replace actions work with Text but not with .docx or .ppt.

Use case: we allow for .docx and .ppt templates with {{field-references}} to be populated with Catalytic data. There's quite a few uses cases where the incoming document (ppt, docx) is close to a final state with most data included in it and formatting included (branding, etc) but there are still additional items that need to be fixed, added, etc by Catalytic. We'd want a Find and Replace type of action to search for data in the document, replace it with {{field-reference}} and then use the Create a Word Documentor Populate a Powerpoint Templateactions.
