I want to find a character that does not have an index marker behind it, is this possible with GREP? I tried this but it didn't work:

(?<!~I)a

Try escaping the tilde - with '\~'

it might be trying to find a literal tilde

so maybe \~I works better

Now that I've tried it - it's not working. No idea why.

I tried it but didn't work, and if I just search "(?=~I)" it finds indeks markers without escaping

I need to add a number of index entries, all of which start with a certain parenthesis. After adding most of them, I want to check if I missed any. Therefore, I'm using a negative lookbehind in grep to verify if there are any parentheses without an index marker preceding them.

Could you post a screenshot and tell us what "parenthesis" you talk about?

OK! for the sample I've used a simple parenthesis (change it for your use)

 

Create a condition and play these 2 simple regex:

 

1/ "Change All":

 

Capture d’écran 2024-02-16 à 16.04.36.png

 

This will mark all the parentheses preceded by an Index Maker.

 

2/ Search one by one:

 

Capture d’écran 2024-02-16 à 16.06.02.png

 

This will find all the parentheses that are not marked! Those you want to check!

 

Finally, trash the condition.

Thanks, if we can't use index marker with negative lookbehind then this will have to do.

Thank you very much.
