Can you please be very specific. Is your system hanging when you run Find/Change and use the GREP section?

I have seen this problem when GREP expressions get complicated. If the formatting won't affect the flow of the text you can create duplicates of your styles with the GREP Styles removed. Apply those styles using Find/Change with formatting.  Repeat to restore the GREP Styles when proofing or printing or preparing final artwork. Changing font, size, or style can affect the flow of the text. Changing colour or underlines wont.

@Varghese,

How many grep styles do you use?
How complex are the grep styles?

 

Can you show something, please? And please, give us a little more information.
