    Probably Covered to Death, Script to find/change formats(italics,bold) into character styles.


      Hi Guys,

      I've been googling my little heart out to try and find a script that will automate the labourious task of going through find/replace to retain all the bold/italics into a character style from a word doc into indesign so that I can apply a paragragh style without loosing these formats.


      I work on 11 magazines a year with around 20 articles in each = 220 times a year I have to go through and "Select all", "Find/Replace" "Find Format- Basic Charater Format = italic" "Change format - Character style = Basic Italic"   and so on with other styles....


      Is there an easier way?

      Thanks in adavnce!
