    Help with GREP & CS5

      The publication I’ m working on needs as a rule, all Footnote markers on the body of text to be set before punctuation marks.

      In Indesign CS4, I was able to accomplish this by using 2 sets of GREP Find&Change strings:


      1. Find: ([[:punct:]])(~F)

          Replace: QQQ$2$1


      2. Find: QQQ



      QQQ was typed because there needed to be something before $2$1 in order for it to work without losing the Footnote marker. I then replaced all QQQ and all was set.


      Unfortunately, this doesn’t work in Indesign CS5 anymore. I keep losing the footnote marker no matter what I try. Can anyone help?
