Hi, I need to globally retag all paragraphs within a document that have a "1stLevHead" tag and change them all to have a "1.0 Heading" tag. I thought the search/replace would let me do this. I can find 1stLevHead paragraphs, however, it doesn't provide a Change option for selecting the new paragraph tag.
I'm on Framemaker 11.02 (unstructured).
Thanks for your help,
1. Place your cursor in any of the 1stLevHead paratags of your document.
2. Using the Paragraph Designer, change the Paragragh Tag: name to "1.0 Heading" and click on Update All.
3. FM will ask if you want to rename all "1stLevHead " to the new name.
4. Click on OK and the job is done.
Thank you Arnis! I had tried the Paragraph Designer, but had clicked Appy before Update All and did not get the rename option. Thanks for clarifying. I knew there had to be an easy way!
You can also use the Find/Change dialog:
1 Put your insertion mark into a paragraph 1.0 Heading.
2 Right click in the paragraph and select Copy Special | Paragraph format.
3 Then go to the Find/Change dialog. In the Find field select Paragraph tag. Enter 1stLevHead.
4 In the Change field select By Pasting. Then click on Find.
5 When you click on Change, the paragraph format which you had copied into the clipboard is pasted.
When this works, you may click on Change all.
Note: You will copy not only the paragraph tag, but also its local formatting, e.g. changed page breaks.
And thank you Winifried! It took me a couple of times to get it to work, but I got it!
I appreciate your help!
