Have a series of text boxes, designed with Paragraph styles, nested styles, and character styles. The client wants to see an alternate version with other keywords/phrases in bold. I don't want to have to keep selecting words in the story and then open Charates Style to apply a change. Far too many "bold" words to add.

I've looked all over and I can't find a basic, repeat action, not unlike Photoshop. Is there one? I'm not looking to Step and Repeat as that seems to be only ideal for shapes. 

 

Please advice. 

Regards-

You can run a find/change. In the find field type the words that you want to bold, leave the change field empty and select the chatacter style you want to apply, in the replace format options.
