This has probably been brought up befor but i would like to do this in a certain way.
I have a catalogue of about 300 pages with some measurements on each page. These measurements are all in mm but not all of them are labeled mm ("2 mm) some are also just a number.
The Idea i have is to make a script wich does the following.
This would only require me to once go through the catalogue and select the mm values and run the script.
Prefferably it should work to select complete tables with only numeric mm values in them and it should to that to every value instead of having to select each cell for itself.
The problem is i have the idea but not the knowledge of the coding, i would need some help with that. Just the basic commands i should be using.
Any help would be appriciated.
Not a difficult problem but I don't have time for it now.
However to make the part of finding the numbers on the pages easier do like this.
1) make a new Conditional text (Bright Yellow Highlight is good)
2) do a grep search on use Ctrl F with the grep \d+
3) set the change format to the new Bright Yellow Highlight condition then do replace all
This will highlight all your numbers for you.
You can do another grep search for all the number that have mm after them and then change them to the "mm" condition
use grep \d+\s+?(mm||millimeter)
This should be helpful with the manual part of your problem
Thank you, that will indeed make the manual part easier.
Bump, I would really need some help/guidance with this please.
