I still do not understand.

 

Do you want to add grep styles to existing paragraph styles?

 

For my part I normally use one "base" paragraph style. All other paragraph styles based on this one. If I want to add some properties - I simple add this property to my "base" style.

That's all.

Hi @bala5FF4:

 

There isn't a copy/paste option—within InDesign's feature set—for GREP styles between paragraph styles. You can rebuild them in each new style or follow @pixxxelschubser's advice. When you base styles on a parent style, it allows you to share formatting instructions. And if you see a mistake a few days down the road, you can modify the parent style and it will roll through to the child styles. It's a more efficient way of working.

Has already anyone asked where the "list of grep styles" came from?

For those who don't take time to read Colin's blog, his Script "grepstylemap.jsx" is here:

 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/5wsz2spu6spygwe/grepstylemap.jsx?dl=0

 

Run it! … and:

 

Choose the para style source (where the Grep styles to be copied are) + OK, then choose the targets (the para styles where you want to paste the Grep styles) + OK.

 

So simplistic but some clicks to be done!  =D
