    Find/Change Word colors error

    Jennifer Hearing

      I am using InDesign CS5 on a mac.


      I set up a GREP search to replace Word colors with colors I’ve defined in InDesign. Works fine when I run in InDesign. However, when I put the search into the FindChangeList.txt file and run the FindChangeByList.jsx script, I always get an error. It says it's error #17, line 172:

      app.doScript(myString, ScriptLanguage.javascript);

      Does anyone know why?


      This is the search I put into the .txt file:

      grep    {, fillColor:”Word_R0_G128_B0”}    {, fillColor:”Black”}    {includeLockedStoriesForFind:false, includeLockedLayersForFind:false, includeHiddenLayers:false, includeMasterPages:false, includeFootnotes:true, kanaSensitive:true, widthSensitive:true}    //Replace Word color


      I came across several posts that said there were several free scripts that can run saved GREP queries all at once, but they don’t list the script names or link to any. Does anyone know a script that combines queries?
