    Indesign crash with findGrep()

    drerol74 Level 2

      Hello!

       

      I have the following problem.:

      in my script findGrep() causes a crash with the following terms:

       

      app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = “\\w?”;  // and also with any other character, e.g. “\\L? …

       

      app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = “h?”;  // also with s?, w?, … L? …

       

      app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = “w?i?”;  // also with W?t? …

       

       

      Background:

      User of my script could enter GREP-Expressions in an Interface. The search results are then highlighted in the document. A huge problem when one of these expressions is entered.

       

       

      try {_myPlace.findGrep()} catch (e) {} // does not work.

       

       

      How can I tackle this problem? Has anyone an idea?

      (Indesign CS5.5, Mac OS X and Indesign CS5, Windows XP)

       

       

      Thanks for help
