Hi,

app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = "~b~b+";

app.changeGrepPreferences.changeTo ="\r";

app.activeDocument.changeGrep ();

This script is working for remove extra enter mark in Indesign file, but when its removed that time the enter mark followed para style was changed.

I want to remove the enter mark at the same time I have retained followed para style. Is this possible by script?

@Hasvi – the script by pixxxelschubser is working.

We need a screenshot with hidden characters showing (a before and after comparison) where it is not working. As I said, for me it is working.

You can include a screenshot with the forum software by using the camera icon:

And with showing hidden characters I mean something like this:

Before running the script:

After running the script:

@hasvi – I did not realise, that you entered another post before for the same issue. Think, you could have mentioned it. Now it's not necessary to send a new screenshot.

Seems to be best to continue this conversation over there:

hasvi

@hasvi

Try this,

var myDoc = app.activeDocument;

app.findGrepPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;

app.changeGrepPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;

app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = "\\r+(?<=\\r)\s*$";

app.changeGrepPreferences.changeTo = "";

app.activeDocument.changeGrep();

app.findGrepPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;

app.changeGrepPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;

app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = "^\r";

app.changeGrepPreferences.changeTo = "";

app.activeDocument.changeGrep();

Hi Hasvi,

 

You can use this one.

var myDoc = app.documents[0];
app.findGrepPreferences = app.changeGrepPreferences = null;

try {
    app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = "^\\r";
    app.changeGrepPreferences.changeTo = "";
    var found_enter_mark = myDoc.findGrep();

    for (var i = found_enter_mark.length - 1; i >= 0; i--) {
        var first_paragraph = found_enter_mark[i].paragraphs.firstItem();
        var next_paragraph = first_paragraph.paragraphs[-1].insertionPoints[-1].paragraphs[0];
        first_paragraph.appliedParagraphStyle = next_paragraph.appliedParagraphStyle;
    }
    myDoc.changeGrep();
}
catch (e) { }

app.findGrepPreferences = app.changeGrepPreferences = null;

Hi @SumitKumar , It’s easy to miss, but this thread is 9 years old, so I doubt @hasvi is going to see your reply.

You get the problems with changing styles because of the \r that's replaced. So you should leave alone the first \r in a series  and remove any following ones. You can do this with the following query:

Find what: \r\K\r+

Change to: <leave empty>
