    Grep script: Search for "€.+" and apply character style?

    andreasf Level 1

      Having spent hours on this I almost give up. I guess it is not a big problem for everyone, but I am kind of new on scripting.

       

      My problem:

      I have a Indesign table (500 + pages) and need to apply character styles to all the content. To make things easier I have inserted a special character eg. "€", "‰" before every pargraph.

       

      What I need to do:

      1. A search for every paragraph beginning with "€" and applying paragraph style named "APPLE"

      2. A search for every paragraph beginning with "‰" and applying paragraph style named "BANANA"

      3. Deleting the characters "€" and "‰".

       

      Any suggestions?
