    Grep Question

    Dodfaefife

      Evening all.

      I'm having trouble figuring out a grep string.

      I have a word doc to use as the text for an InDesign layout. It will be over 100 pages and I want to use a grep style to automatically format the paragraph headers as I paste in the copy from word.

       

      The word file already has the Paragraph headers tagged by <H> then a break and then the body copy. So, for example:


      <H>This is the paragraph header

      This is the body copy

       

      I'm trying to figure out a grep string that will apply a style to the copy after the "<H>" and up to the para break but also delete the  "<H>" leaving only the newly formatted paragraph header , e.g. 


      This is the paragraph header

      This is the body copy


      I don't have to format the body copy as that is taken care of by the default style applied to the text frames.


      Any help appreciated.
