Dear Team,

 

When I used this grep command see below the screenshot, two enter marks It will combine into a single enter mark. In this case, the XML tag was removed. Please see the screenshot for your reference.

----------------------------------

1. After Figure moved to the top of the page:

----------------------------------

 

My requirement is:

It is necessary to merge two entermarks into one, without affecting the XML structure. Now i manually merged the entermark.

Hi @kanagakumar ,

without looking deeper into details here, you could try to remove one of the two characters and not set a new one.

Your GREP could be rewritten with a positive lookbehind or a positive lookahead, depending if the first or the second character of two should be removed.

 

Either remove an end of paragraph character that precedes an end of paragraph character:

 

\r(?=\r)

 

Or do it the other way and remove an end of paragraph character that comes after another end of paragraph cha

Dear Team,

 

I found one script in chartGPT but this coding was not run in the indesign, please advise

 

my xml tag name is "artgroup"

----------------------------

var doc = app.activeDocument;
var xmlElements = doc.xmlElements;

// Function to search for a specific tag name
function findXMLTags(tagName) {
var results = [];
for (var i = 0; i < xmlElements.length; i++) {
searchTag(xmlElements[i], tagName, results);
}
return results;
}

// Recursive function to search through XML elements
function searchTag(xmlElement, tagName, results) {
if (xmlElement.markupTag.name === tagName) {
results.push(xmlElement);
}
for (var i = 0; i < xmlElement.xmlElements.length; i++) {
searchTag(xmlElement.xmlElements[i], tagName, results);
}
}

// Example usage: Find all <title> tags
var titleTags = findXMLTags("artgroup");
for (var i = 0; i < titleTags.length; i++) {
$.writeln(titleTags[i].contents); // Print the contents of each <title> tag
}

----------------------------

Thanks

(?<=\r)\r

 

In both cases leave the Change to field empty.

 

However, without any sample document, I cannot be sure, that one of my suggestions would work for you.
