My apologies if this topic has already been raised and answered. If so, I’d appreciate a short pointer toward the relevant thread…
My question regards making document-wide changes to styles. I know that ‘styles’ in Scrivener are really pre-formats but I’m interested to if there is some way of using ‘find and replace’ to make global changes to formats. This might act as a surrogate for at least one of the mechanisms that make style-sheets so useful.
There’s no ‘format’ criteria available in the regular Find… dialogue box and there’s no ‘replace’ function available in the ‘Find by Formatting’ dialogue box. So I’m wondering if there’s another technique for doing this.
My (uneducated) wish would be for the latter; an addition to ‘Find by colour’ or ‘Find by character format’ that allows substituting (or replacing) a different value for the same attribute using a ‘replace all’ command.
That way I could change my hundreds of note identifiers from a bright-red 16pt Times New Roman to a more elegant 6pt superscript at one, or possibly two, fell swoops.
thanks for any suggestions.
