    I need to preserve the local formatting while delete and replace styles using JS

      Hi,

       

      While delete and replacing the style using JS.. The local formatting is not carried with that. I mean it is like clearing over rides after over rides...

       

      But i need those local formatting to be preserved. (italic, super script, subscript, bold, etc... ) Is it possible in Java script... can anyone help on this regard..

       

       

      //clear the find and change preferences before running this lines....

      function replaceStyle(pstyle, newStyle){
          with (app.findGrepPreferences)
              {
                  appliedParagraphStyle = pstyle;
                  }
          with (app.changeGrepPreferences)
              {
                  appliedParagraphStyle = newStyle;
                  }
          app.documents.item(0).changeGrep();
      }

       

      replaceStyle("ct", "tt");

       

      Thanks in advance...
