Useful Regex

Profile Permissions

Use this regex to massively replace profile permissions in your editor.

Replace YOUROBJECTNAMEHERE byt the name of the object you want to set the permissions for. This regex finds permissions for all Custom fields on that object and sets them to TRUE/TRUE (editable, writable).
If you wish to replace permissions accross all custom objects for example, simply replace YOUROBJECTNAMEHERE by .*__c
