I'm sure you could make a script for it in Extendscript or Framescript to find all paragraphs with that style and to change only that aspect of the paragraph. It sounds like a trivial think for someone who knows one of the scripting languages. It might pay for you to pay someone to make a script for this. Or you could look around on the internet for a similar script.

Hi Shmuel,

Sorry, it didn't work.:-( At least in FM 11, your method affects only the single pgf in which applied. Only way I've found to make it apply globally is by removing overrides.

There is no "bullet" style. In the pgf designer, pagination pane, under Format, the "Run-in Head-Default Punctuation:" field contains the unwanted period.

Thanks anyway,
Karen

By "default punctuation" I'm assuming you mean the "bullet" style.

Try making the one change in one paragraph, then clicking Apply, then clicking Apply All and selecting NOT to remove overrides. I think that the one change you made will change in all paragraphs of the style without removing all OTHER overrides of the paragrph style.

I'm not 100% sure of this, but I think it's correct. In the worse case scenario, you won't change anything in the other paragraphs of this style since you selected not to remove overrides, but I think that the one change you made is applied to all paragraphs even when you select NOT to remove overrides.

Please guys only small flames if I'm wrong :)

Hi Framers,

One of our paragraph styles is a run-in heading. Mysteriously, a default punctuation of period space has appeared in the paragraph designer. In all other source files, we can only find the space!

Unfortunately, to remove the period requires removing all overrides, which is impossible: due to complex spacing issues (which I've asked about here before and determined there is no real solution), there is a ton of handwork to get the spacing perfect in lines with this style. Removal of overrides would delete all the corrected spacing. Since there are literally thousands of instances, and the current edition of this book is just a few days from publication, the time required to rebuild the hand spacing is simply not available.

Is there any alternate way to get rid of this punctuation without also removing the spacing?

Thanks very much,

Karen
