Hi all,

I need a script which insert a tab before UPPERCASE text in "[Paper]" color. Would it be possible?

Thanks in advance,
Rogerio

You don't need a script. In the Grep tab of the Find/Change window:

 

Find what: (?=\u\u+)

Find format: [Paper] colour

Change to: \t

Hi Peter, thanks for that! It worked just as expected. 🙂

I just noticed that some uppercase text contain a anchored object right before it in the documents I'm currently working on. Therefore, the provided GREP is not finding them 😞
Do you know any GREP which add a tab in the midle of an object and uppercase text?

Thanks again for your help!

Regards,
Rog

Hey Peter, I tried it, but no luck 😞

Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I attached an indd here, so you can give it a try as well.

Thanks,
Rog

Edit your "Hyperlink" char style and change its color to [paper]

 

Then Find: ^(?=~a?\u)

Hi @FRIdNGE, thanks for checking! 🙂

The tab should go right after the anchored object and not before. Would it be possible?

Thanks,
Rog

I don't know if a script is doable, but why don't you simply run a Find-Change?

Edit: too slow…
