There are keyboard shortcuts
And under Product Area: Text and Tables
GREP Find Next --- [none defined] GREP Load Find and Find Next instance --- [none defined] GREP Load Find with selected text --- [none defined] GREP Load Replace with selected text --- [none defined] GREP Replace with Change To text --- [none defined] GREP Replace with Change To text and Find Next --- [none defined]
Thanks for the info, but I am not looking to make shortcuts. I want to delete all the pre-filled text that appears from previous searches. For example in the original image this is represented as
and the dropdown box is blue indicating that there is stored data. Having cleared ALL ID Preferences fixes the problem, however, I don't want to be forced to delete ALL preferences to delete this data. See pic below
Those lists are saved in the InDesign SavedData file (part of the prefs). You can remove them by closing ID and renaming or deleting the file from your user library (it's a hidden file, by the way). You'll also lose your Open Recent list when you do this, but probably nothing else you'll miss.
See Replace Your Preferences for the file location.
Yup, the Cmd + Ctrl + Opt + Shift (Mac) was the one I used previously. It just re-organises the layout of the workspace as well. Thanks for the assistance.
You've done more than required to remove those lists. When you replace the InDesign Defaults file (the other half of the prefs), which happens when you use the keyboard shortcut, you are also removing any changes you made from the default preferences settings and all of your printer and document presets.
