There have been many discussions of data loss when creating a GEDCOM from RM.  I have searched for and read what I could find.  I need to do a search and replace for some words in about 30-35 sources.  I am considering exporting a GEDCOM, making the changes in MS Word and importing back into RM.  Is there any document or discussion thread that concisely summarizes any real or potential losses?  Thanks.

I would recommend that you use Search>Find Everywhere searching by key words on that source. When the results come up under Sources you will see them listed. You can make the changes by clicking on any blue hyperlinks there.
