You want to use a GREP Style. First create a Character Style that only specifies Italic as the font style, nothing else. Then use the following for your GREP Style either in the GREP Styles dialogue avaiable from the Paragraph panel or as part of a Paragraph Style…
The cryptic expression is (?<=\().*?(?=\))
You can copy and paste that.
Wow, never heard about this. Thank you so much.
I'll try it when I get back home from work and post back with results.
Now for instance, say I would like to select something between other symbols beside parenthesis, which characters should I change in the string? Tho ones in the outside or the inside? For example, if I want to select something between quotes, would the string be "?<=\().*?(?=\)" or (?<=\().*?"?=\")?
Or am I just making stuff up and it not possible?
Again, thanks for all the help.
Thank you, Jongware! That was a good read.
I'll try this back at home and post back with results.
