How to select and change special characters

Apr 11, 2012 9:27 AM

Hi all,


In my document wherever a, e, i, o, u comes in RED color that i want to add one black dot below that characters.


Now what we do is place one dot then use baseline shift after that use kerning upto 400 like that only.


Job font is Palatino Lt Std.


Its time consuming a lot!!!




Write now i am using GREP options only.




Myself creating script for wherever RED color comes it create a character style  after that i did it  manually without seeing the  Manuscript.


My script follows:


app.findTextPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;

app.changeTextPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;

app.findTextPreferences.fillColor = "Red";

app.changeTextPreferences.appliedCharacterStyle = "DOT"



For your more information see attachment

Sorry for wrongly i posted  the previous thread.

    Have you tried using a unicode font instead (one that supports that character)? It might be easier than trying to "construct" characters.


    Maybe I'm misunderstanding...
