Taking advantage of GREP inside InDesign

Learn to use GREP inside Adobe InDesign

GREP (Global Regular Expression Parsing) is one of the most powerful features of Adobe InDesign, but it’s often overlooked since it hides within other capabilities like Find/Change and Paragraph Styles. Once you learn the basics of GREP, you might wonder how you ever worked without it.

If you’re not familiar with GREP and its relationship with InDesign, it’s used for both simple and complex text operations. Simply put, GREP lets you automate formatting and find/changing of text, based on patterns in the text.

Meet the InDesigner: Michael Murphy brings his expertise to lynda.com

MichaelMurphy

Author Michael Murphy with his new baby. From Michael's podcast, The InDesigner, episode 52, available through iTunes.

We are SO pleased to welcome Michael Murphy to our lynda.com recording booths this week!

Michael has been a designer and art director for over 20 years, maintains The InDesigner blog, and is the man behind The InDesigner videocast available on iTunes (voted one of .net magazine’s Top 40 Tech Podcasts). He’s also an Adobe Certified Expert in InDesign, an author and a frequent speaker and instructor. Between all that, and recently welcoming his first baby into the world, we managed to get some of his time for a new InDesign GREP course that we think just might change the way you look at InDesign.

Michael is just wrapping up the GREP course, so it should be ready for your hot little hands in a few months time. In the meantime, check out Michael’s fantastic videocast for really great content, in a really enjoyable format. Thanks, Michael!

Thanks for signing up.

We’ll send you a confirmation email shortly.
