Suddenly remembering the script that can merge and run multiple Greps, where is it?

I seem to have seen a script that can run multiple Greps at once.

However, at that time, it didn't feel very scientific and didn't feel very good to use, so I didn't collect it.

Do you know where to find it?

Thank you.

Interesting. What do you mean by that?

Are you referring to the FindChangeByList script? This is where you can list multiple find change queries and run them all at once. It's in Window > Utilities > Scripts > Application > Samples > JavaScript.

It seems like this.

It doesn't seem like this.

I have already deleted the software that comes with it.

Is there an improved version.

The meaning is to be indecisive.

Perhaps, it seems that

Can you clarify these two lines? I have no idea what you mean:

It doesn't seem like this.

 

The script comes with InDesign—you will need to have InDesign installed to use it. 

I have already deleted the software that comes with it.

 

To the best of my knowledge, the script as shipped has not been updated in years. And that's because we customize it to meet our specific needs. It lists examples and then we tweak it. 

Is there an improved version.

I suspect you're thinking of Peter Kahrel's GREP Query Manager.

His archive is now hosted at Creative Pro...

Not this, this is managing Grep.

I am looking for someone who can execute multiple Greps at once

Perhaps it's FindChangeByList.jsx, which comes with Indesign

I made an improved version of this script and it cleans up twice as many small typesetting/keyboarding issues. I have it on trainingonsite.com

Hellow @Peter Kahrel 

How does this script set the search scope?
For example, I only want to target the selection area or the current text box.
Now it is the default to search and replace the entire document.

You can't set the search scope, it's always the document. I could add the selection of the search scope though.

 

In the meantime, you can use this script:

https://creativepro.com/files/kahrel/indesign/grep_query_manager.html

which you can use to run queries (and much more) and in which you can select a scope.

It's strange why these two scripts haven't been merged into one.

Can you determine which GREP should be run when and on which Text object(s)? Multiple documents maybe?

 

Or is it on a case-by-case basis = current selection?

The idea is that grep_query_runner is the more accessible script, more user-friendly. But adding the selection of the search scope seems a useful option, so I've added that.

Hi~@Peter Kahrel 

The new grep_query_runner.jsx seems to have some issues.
When you select a text box, an error is reported.
And where can I see all your latest scripts.
thanks

@Peter Kahrel 

About Grep_query_runner.jsx.
If you could add style search and replacement functions, that would be great.
Thank you.
