Search and Replace Filter on a custom dimension

Hi there - I'm trying to find a way to search for reported values in a custom dimension in order to display an alternative value. I followed https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1034834?hl=en but custom dimensions do not appear in the Filter field.

 

For example what GA is reading in the custom dimension field is displayed as "1234.5.6", but I want to set a filter to change the "1234" to "Nick" so it becomes "Nick.5.6"

View level filter will work.

 

You can create a filter at the View level, which would make that filter be applied to that particular view only; however, you should never need to do so unless if you have to create a filter based on Custom Dimensions or Metrics.
