Hi Experts,

I am trying to do simple find and replace script. My task is explained below:

find: some text in english

replace: translated unicode text non-english language

I have number  of paragraphs to be replaced.

Any advice how to do this using FrameMaker script since I am good with Adobe Indesign scripting I am new to Adobe FrameMaker script.

Thanks in advance

Regards

Arul

Hi Arul,

While it may seem like a simple task, find operations and text manipulation are some of the more difficult concepts to understand. It would be difficult for someone to answer your question quickly and clearly here. You might need to just experiment some.

There have been discussions on this forum about find operations before, including this recent thread:

find the text based on language

Maybe that will help get you started.
