(Music playing.) Hi! I am Michael Murphy and I'd like to welcome you to InDesign CS4 Learning GREP. In this course, I'll show you how to use GREP expressions in Adobe InDesign for automatic, dynamic text formatting, and powerful search and replace operations. I'll introduce you to all of the basic and advanced concepts of GREP, including metacharacters, expressions, and how to describe text as patterns.
