    Writing a script to apply superscript formatting

    jillbreit

      Hi there,

       

      I am trying to data merge a CSV into an InDesign template (CS6) and within the CSV file are registered trademarks, TMs, SMs and copyright symbols. The CSV is saved as a text so formatting is not maintained prior to the data merge. I am looking to write a script that will automatically run a find/change to format these as superscripts since we have an automator that converts the document to a PDF when the merge is being done. GREP works for us when we are previewing our templates with the data merge but cannot be done in the automator. I am new to InDesign and am unfamiliar with script writing. Is anyone familiar with a script that will perform this function? Any help would be much appreciated.

       

      Many thanks!
