Hi,

I've some text as below in a text file that needs to be imported into InDesign.

"Law of Civil Procedures"

And in InDesign this is to be made bold. I want to know if there is a way to make it bold directly and then import it into InDesign, I'm asking this as I have approximately 200 pages that needed with all the font styles applied. This would be very helpful if i can first apply the font styles and then import it into InDesign.

    If the text file include with styles, you can create bold style in indesign and: Customize Style Import>Style Mapping, from import options.

    If it's parts of text are Bold etc. you can use this script to create character styles for all the bold, italics etc. throughout the document.
