    Any way to search places where a style is used in RH?

    kdeuler Level 1

      Hi

       

      I've a few questions about style management:

       

      1. Is there a way to search for where a style is used in a project or topic?
      2. If so, is there a way to search-and-replace, ie, find where a style is used and replace it with another style?
      3. When deleting a style, is there a way RH can be set to display a warning if the style to be deleted is being used anywhere?

       

      FrameMaker handles the above use cases very well. However, I can't yet see how these actions are done in RH.

       

      Thanks!

          RH doesn't warn you if you delete a style that is in use.

           

          If you want to replace a specific style with another one, the easiest

          way is to use a search and replace operation. For example, to change the

          style 'myStyle1' into 'myStyle2', use the following search action:

           

          class="myStyle1"

           

          and replace by

           

          class="myStyle2"

           

          Make a backup before doing this though, as you can cripple a project in

          seconds.

           

          Kind regards,
