Greetings,

 

For typesetting our books, I use Automatication's helpful Multi-Find/Change extension. I'd like to add one final GREP or Find/Replace command which clears all overrides (not only for the main story's text but also for all the footnotes). Can someone help? Thanks!

 

Warmly,

Jonathan

Why not just run a script, which can be triggered with a keyboard shortcut?

Here's a link to the article from which it came.

Scott's solution was helpful (a script which I added) but is there not a way to program some sort of a command which I could then add to my Multi-Find/Change extension. Then the whole process happens at the same time. Can a GREP command do this somehow?
