    GREP style problem when colliding with nested styles

    Scott Falkner Level 5

      I have a GREP style to add ordinals to numbers…

       

      (?<=\d)(st|nd|rd|th)

       

      Works great. But I also have a paragraph style with a drop cap followed by three words in all OT small caps. When the ordinal appears in this location it is lowercase. I want to override it so it is not an ordinal, just small cap numbers.

       

      I tried…

       

      (?<= )(?<=\w+)(?<= )(?<=\w+)(?<= )(?<=\d)(st|nd|rd|th)

       

      Figuring it would apply to any ordinal that was not the first, second, or third word in the paragraph. But it just turns off the ordinals in all cases.

       

      I think I’m close. I just need a little tweak.
