    Need help applying formatting in GREP search

    askirrow999

      I'm trying to work out how I can apply character formatting to a specific character within a pattern rather than applying the character style to the whole pattern.

       

      I can create a search which returns the text string that contains the particular character I want to format, but I want to apply a character style to a single character within that string. For instance:

       

      The text I am searching for might be 7b9. I want to be able to apply a character style to just the "b" and not the 7 or 9. Obviously I can't apply the formatting to all instances of "b"...

       

      Is that possible?

       

      Thanks for any help. I'm on v5.5.
