Hi all.

I have a large document strewn with a particular abbreviation,  lets say it's "ABC".

I can easily search for "ABC" but how do I replace every ABC with small caps ABC?

Hi @spaceprobe:

 

Create a character style to assign small caps. Test on one or two occurences, the use Edit > Find Change to locate ABC (enable whole word) and replace with the character style. Check carefully for inadvertant matches.

Thanks Barb and Mike! Brilliant. Can't try it right now but I'm sure that will do the trick.

In addition to what Barb illustrates, you could make an "OpenType All Small Caps" character style, which I often prefer to simple Small Caps for initialisms like yours.
