Hi everyone,

I need your help. In my document I'm using text like SomethigSpecial but the word Special is a superscript as below:

It is hard to remember always about the superscript while typing. So how I can add an autorect (or something else) to word "Somethingspecial" so I can be sure that every time it will change to something I showed you on the picture?

I don't want to use search/change option after I'm done with the file but as a autocorrect to have changes live. I wan't it to be changed while I'am typing.

@vladan saveljic I've done all you wrote but it doesn't work. Now all text is as a superscript 😉 .

I wrote in GREP style:

\bSomething\KSpecial\b

Don't apply the character style "Superscript" on your paragraph

Just write with the "Body text" applied SomethingSpecial.

(don't select the character style "Superscript")

try adding (?i) at the front of your expression - this removes case-sensitivity

(?i)\bSomething\KSpecial\b

@SJRiegel  Unfortunately it doesn't help. I've send link to this thread to a friend if it works for him but he has the same problem.

@Manan Joshi @vladan saveljic @SJRiegel @pixxxelschubser 

Hi again,

I thought that there is something missing while I was working on a document today.

Is it posible adding to your GREP [to remind you: (?i)\bSomething\KSpecial\b] some line that will:

- make both words capitalics (always "SomethingSpecial", not e.g. "SomethingSPECIAL")

- delete space. (I found in document few "Something special" and I need i to be "SomethingSpecial"). I know it need to be a task like delete space always after "something" but if there is a "special" after.

one simply way could be (without using script) with find replace in two steps:
1)
find
something special
change to
SomethingSpecial

and then
2)
find
somethingspecial
change to
SomethingSpecial

Thank you @vladan saveljic but I know this solution. I have a very complicated file with a 500 pages. So I need to have any changes "live", not after file is done because it could cause many problems. That's why I'm looking for solutions with GREP.

Ok, but grep can't do all these changes "live."

For example you could do these substitutions at the beginning, not after file is done

@JA Kowalski,

There is a difference between Grep Find & Replace (menu command) and Grep Styles.

Grep Find & Replace can delete characters - a Grep Style cannot.

 

That's why:

Like @vladan saveljic wrote before: Use the menu command Grep Find & Replace at the beginning for substitutions and clean you texts. After that - use Grep Styles in Paragraph Styles for "Live formatting".

 

BTW: This Grep Find & Replace could do the first step.
