    Using GREP to apply paragraph styles, not just character styles

    pinemach

      I have a body of text, and in it I'd like to apply a specific style to paragraphs matching a pattern. I made a GREP style that applied some formatting changes to the paragraphs I wanted it to affect, but in doing so I found that I could not center those lines using a character style. (The matching lines should be centered, and the rest should be left-justified.)

       

      I was thrilled to learn of the GREP feature, then completely let down by this limitation. Does InDesign provide a way to automate this so I don't have to go through and center each matched paragraph by hand?

       

      Thanks!
