    JS for Find/Change

    Level 1
      I am a novice with JS, but trying to make a couple of enhancements to workflow using scripting. I have managed to figure most things out ok, but usually just need a little kickstart. What I am trying to do is:

      InDesign CS2
      Find a specific sequence of characters in a text selection (in this case, " - " (that is space dash space) and replace with end of nested style & forced line break (^h^n). At the same time, search for double carriage returns and change to single carriage returns (^p^p => ^p).

      Currently, using the Find/Change Function from the Edit menu but I'd like to be able to just apply a script to do it all. I have tried to dig through the archives for a similar posting, but haven't had a lot of luck. If anyone can please point me in the right direction, it would most certainly be greatly appreciated!

      Thank you in advance.
