I want to search and replace for two hard returns and replace with two hard returns then apply a style sheet to the first line after 2nd hard return. This is a directory and the listings come with a return between each name. I need to bold the names. I have my style sheet and it is a drag doing name after name manually. Especially without a numeric keyboard. Thanks.
[edit: looks like it can't be done with straight search and replace and unfortunately I have no clue how to use GREP]
You could try searching for (?<=\r\r). and apply a paragraph style.
The dot is any character, and the expression in the parentheses is a positive look-behind for two returns. Since paragraph styles apply to the paragraph in its entirety is should be sufficient to find any character after two returns.
