Global command to change a chord symbol

• Sep 10, 2020 - 00:48

Is there a global command that can ...say change the chord symbol for C half diminished(C with a slash through a circle) to Cm7b5?
I downloaded a piece and it has about 64 of those half diminished chords charted.... Jazz players don't use that notation normally....they use minor 7th with a flatted 5th.
Is there a global command that will allow me to change every half diminished chord to a minor 7th with a flatted fifth?.... or any chord changed to any other kind of notation... so I don't have to go one by one?
