Hello,

I have a 80 page document that has tualatinvalley.org listed in the text on multiple pages. I want to add the tualatinvalley.org hyperlink to all the tualatinvalley.org's listed on the different pages. Other than selecting tualatinvalley.org one at a time and adding a hyperlink, is their a way to quickly add the hyperlink to all the tualatinvalley.org's listed in the document? Thank you for your time. I greatly appreciate it.

Hm. The following could work:

First add the link to one instance of your text.

Then copy the text to the clipboard.

Next step: Find all text with the same contents using GREP Find/Replace.

Replace with the contents of the clipboard.

 

Warning: Of course that would also mean that all replaced text would be formatted the way your original text would be that was copied to the clipboard. Including the hyperlink.

 

The replacement GREP expression would be:

~c

( Formatted contents of the clipboard. )

That's in the memory of your computer. A temporary storage area: https://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/clipboard

If you copy something selected the clipboard is populated. Paste would bring it back. More than one time if you like.
