Search in Styles

Find/Change within InDesign Paragraph Styles!

The new Search in Styles script allows you to easily perform a Find/Change operation on the paragraph styles in your document!

It’s simple to use, and a tremendous time-saver.


For example, say you need to change the point size of all text in a book that is currently 12pt, to 11pt. You have many paragraph styles in the document that are all set to 12pt. How do you change them all quickly?

The answer is to open InDesign’s find/change dialog. In the Find Format box, set it to 12 pt, and in the Change Format box, set it to 11 pt, just as you would with a regular text search. Now, run Search in Styles. It will show you a list of all paragraph styles that are set to 12 pt. With a click of the “Change All” button, all those paragraph styles are redefined to 11 pt! It’s as easy as that.

Virtually anything you can search for with InDesign’s Find/Change, you can search for with Search in Styles to modify your paragraph styles.

In fact, you can even run a find/change on the paragraph style names themselves! In the Find What field of InDesign’s text Find/Change dialog, type a grep expression; in the Change To field, type the replacement. Run Search in Styles and all you paragraph styles names are updated.
