    A search & replace question

      I have a large document with many "dictionary" definitions, like this:


      apple * a common fruit

      blue bonnet * the state flower of Texas

      bird of paradise * a spectacular tropical bird species


      Is there a way I could use search and replace to apply a character style to the beginning of each paragraph, to all the characters to the left of the asterisk?
