You can search artistic or frame text for not just words or parts of words, but a host of character and paragraph attributes such as fonts, styles, alignment, bullets and numbering, drop caps, regular expressions, and more! Once located, you can replace items either globally, or on a case-by-case basis.
To use Find and Replace:
From the Text menu, select Find.
On the Find And Replace panel, do one of the following:
To find text: Type the text to be found in the Find box and its replacement text (if any) in the Replace with box.
To find formatting: Click Formatting and select a Format (from dialog), Character Style or Paragraph Style.
To find special characters: Click the search icon prefixing the Find box and select a special character from the pop-up menu.
Click Find, Replace or Replace All.
The results of the search appear at the bottom of the panel. You can click on any result entry to jump to the search term text as it appears on its page.
Regular expressions extend the capabilities and power of the Find and Replace function beyond searching for simple text strings. They are widely used across the word-processing and DTP community, with a multitude of expressions available. As a result, listing regular expressions and their syntax is beyond the scope of Affinity Publisher Help. Please use Internet resources to research and develop your own regular expressions including www.regular-expressions.info and regexone.com.
To use regular expressions:
Click Formatting and enable either Regular Expressions or Locale Aware Regular Expressions.
