First; I'd like to thank you, Tobias, so much for your effort in maintaining this amazing plugin and offering such a huge work for free!
Second, The title of the post explains it all, let me illustrate a little.
I use this plugin to maintain a guide with many tables that contain pictures. All those pictures' links were correct until a recent change to the directory those pictures are hosted on. Of course i can't change their placement now or i'll mess up many other things in the site. so I thought i'd export the *.dump file and replace all the links at once using notepad++. The file opened correctly and replacing all links was very easy and everything seemed alright until i tried to import the new*.dump file to the site(of course i have a backup and I am aware of the warning.. just in case) but I thought it wouldn't harm to try. The warning is indeed accurate and i got the "The uploaded dump file is empty. Please upload a valid dump file." error.
My question is: Is there a way to edit the *.dump file without harming its integrity? is there a software that would permit me to edit it without destroying it?
I'd highly appreciate your input into this. Thank you in advance!
