Re: How can I search for bold text and change it to a character style?

You can also get Rick Quattro's Find/Change Special plugin, which can
search for a character style and replace it with another character
style (amongst other things).

 Note that the Copy Special is Character *Format* rather than
 Character *Style*, and that's actually an important distinction.
 When you use Copy Special, FrameMaker copies all of the current
 selections font format characteristics, including the explicit font
 and size settings as well as the character tag that you really
 want to propagate. If you copy the format from a chunk of
 body text (for example, 11 pt TNR bold with the Bold character
 tag applied) and then paste onto a selection in a heading (say
 14 pt Helvetica non-bold), you will get a chunk of 11 pt TNR
 in the middle of that heading.
