Nested style including two or more sentences

I want to apply char style to a word or sentence containing 1 or more words and ending with a  ":"

After that there may be 1 or more sentence describing it which I want in a normal style. Then again a word or sentence ending with ":" where I need to apply a char style. 

 

I have tried this using Nested style (screenshot attached). It works for one sentence only but there are more than 1 sentence, it is not working.

What modificaiton do I need to do in Nested style ? It is driving me crazy.

 

I posted a similar question but that was for single sentence.

In this case, I would use a GREP style, like this:

(\w+\s)*\w+?:

Just wanted to know about another solution whether it is possible using Nested Styles or not.

 

Hi @shahidr100, I think you would have to insert some kind of marker, so Grep is going to be more efficient:

@jmlevy Thanks for the reply.  I am using Grep styles already for this. What if I want to do with Nested Styles?

You need to use the“end of nested style” character as a trigger to achieve this. But why don't you want to use GREP style since it's more efficient in this case?

@rob day Yes. This is what @jmlevy suggested. I havent tried the solution yet but I will and your screenshot suggests it works perfectly fine.

Thanks for both of you.
