Hi Avraham To apply the character format: 1. Create the format and apply it to a text range. 2. Select the formatted text and go to Edit->Copy Special->Character format. 3. Do a search and replace for your company name. In the Change field, select By pasting. This applies the character format that you copied previously.
As for applying italics without a character format, I think most would agree that this is a Bad Thing. It's certainly not allowed in our office. I don't think you can automate it. No idea about Rick's script, but I expect he will chime in.

I now need to look for all instances of the company's name, e.g., Acme, and apply a character style to it. And if I am already asking, how would I apply italics to the text, instead of applying a character style? I have looked at a number of articles about doing Find-Replace with tags but they all seem to discuss how to change one tag to another, or how to change local formatting to a tag, and not how to look for text and apply to it a tag or formatting. I saw somebody recommended Rick Quattro's Find-Replace plug-in. I couldn't find it. Does anybody have a link to this?
