Is there any way to do a search something and replace with what I found plus something more?

For example, in Indesign, I can search "(xy)(wz)" and replace "$1+$2".

In FM 12 GREP are implemented, but it seems it cannot do what I want.

Hi Carlo,

Yes Regular expressions are supported in FrameMaker 12. Do following:

  1. Select Regular Expressions in the Find/Change dialog box.
  2. Enter (xy)(wz) in Find text field, and $1+$2 in Change text field.
  3. Click on Change.

Let me know, in case you face any issues.

Thanks!
