I appreciate the response, but that's not quite the problem. The em dash character doesn't have a unique character tag. It's just tagged with the paragraph format and any character tag applied to the text around it (bold, emphasis, etc.). I'm trying to isolate the em dash b/c it presents a problem when the paragraph is reformatted with Chinese fonts. I haven't had the same problem with any other character.

As far as I can tell, Frame only lets me change >character attributes, not tags. If I understand, the problem is to change OldTag to NewTag, preserving all attributes. Does the following help? Copying a particular character format (Command-Option-x on the Mac) and pasting it (Command-V) changes attributes and tags. But if OldTag and NewTag have the same attributes, all that happens when you paste is that the tagname changes. So manually set up one character with NewTag, same attribs as OldTag, and Command-OPtion-x it. One could then FindNext through the document (Command-G), pasting (Command-V) NewTag over OldTag on each occurrence of the target character. So long as only occurrences of the target character have NewTag you can then affect them and only them by altering the attributes of NewTag, if desired. Automating this in Applescript would be trivial. Graeme Forbes _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as acarrico at adamsglobalization.com.
