Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Using GREP to find text in all caps, part of InDesign CS3 Long Documents.
OK let's take a look at a more complex GREP query, one that is going to help us solve a problem that we have in this document…where there is much text that has been typed with the Caps Lock key on and there is no way for us…to change this in an automated way other than to use GREP.…First of all let's acquaint ourselves with the nature of the problem.…I'm just going to take a quick spin through this. These are the things I'm talking about here, these passages typed in all caps…for emphasis that really look quite ugly because the size of the all caps is just a bit overwhelming…within the context of the upper and lowercase text.…
So what we want to do is...…I have made a character style small caps and if we just take a quick look at that we can see that this is going…to apply OpenType All Small Caps to our found text.…And as I say we have got many, many pages of it.…I have digested a segment over here on the pasteboard so that we don't have to keep changing pages just…to show you the issues that we are going to run up against.…
