I can't find a website for the alternate symbol chain that would target a period (punctuation) for grep styling. If someone has an answer and maybe a preferred resource, I would really appreciate the answer and a link.

 

Thanks 🙂

You need to "escape" the period character which you can do by putting a backslash before the character. Typing \. into a GREP expression will find all of the period characters.
