GREP?

Post by jcsiegrist » 30 Mar 2017, 12:28

What's about GREP (or something similar) and particularly Grep styles in QXP 2017?

Hi Jean Claude,

GREP is not part of QuarkXPress 2017. You can use Conditional Styles for some instances where you would use GREP.

Thanks
Matthias

Conditional Styles will not help with GREP search, find + replace. Is there a solution for this? If not on board, maybe an extension?

Hi kazu,

only workaround I know is to export as XPress Tags and then do a GREP search/replace and reimport.

Thanks
Matthias

Due to automation to speed up working with Quark, think that GREP is a necessity — for search and replace and in stylesheets too.
