Harness the Power of GREP in InDesign
You may have read how GREP can save you time in InDesign. You may have heard the production pros talk about it. You’ve seen the GREP tab in Find/Change, and the GREP Style panel in Paragraph Style Options, and wondered, what is it exactly, and why would I use it, and how?
GREP in InDesign is your answer. Armed with this wonderful guide full of real-world examples of using GREP to fix and format text in InDesign, you can learn the ins and outs of this powerful tool. It starts out with the basics — what’s the difference between Text and GREP Find/Change? How do I use GREP to find patterns of text (e.g., 4-digit years, any text between parentheses) and how do I apply formatting to that, or change what it found, throughout the document? Peter continues with in-depth, more complicated examples, such as swapping first and last names in lists, chaining GREP queries, and using wildcards, lookarounds, and locations in your searches.
You’re free to select GREP strings from the PDF to copy and paste into the GREP fields in your own InDesign documents to see the magic happen!
