So are you trying to find # and replace it with the black paw print?

  1. Select the black paw print. 
  2. Edit > Copy
  3. Find/Change
    • Find: #
    • Change: ^C

 

This will paste whatever is on the clipboard, in the first case, the black paw print.

The funny thing is, I was thinking 'yes, with GREP you can use Clipboard contents', never realized it was there in the plain 'Text' tab as well...

I would copy the bear paw, then paste it into the text in context. That is, manually replace one symbol. After that, scale and position the paw using Object > Anchored Object > Options. Once the paw is positioned where you want it relative to the text make it an object style then select it as text. Copy, then follow Barb's instructions.

Hi, maybe you can help me. I was struggling with replacing a"word" with a png file.

The problem is that I have a document with facing pages and this should the be on left and right facing towards the page. Is there any way to do this? Also, I tried the suggestions from above and I only manage to replace all to ^C even though I adjust to replace to clipboard content, unformatted..

Thank you for any help

Create an object style first to the image and make sure it's applied to the object.

 

In the object style you can set the anchored objects setting.

 

Then once it is all set up correctly. You then copy the image with the object style.

 

And do the find replace.
