Hi All

I am writing a GREP script to find and change some text and in the dialog box I have the option to set the direction that the find\change progresses.

Does anyone know of a way that I can set the direction of the find\change in my js script?

I assume there is a setting that I can apply but I haven't been able to find the syntax for one.

 

Thanks in advance

app.findChangeGrepOptions.searchBackwards = true/false

Thanks for the quick reply Peter!

I am actually referencing back to your Scripting InDesign cs3/4 with JavaScript quite a lot as I work on these scripts.
