Bold Text in Adobe InDesign

    Hi, I'm setting a restaurant menu in InDesign and I have the description of the food followed by a tab then the price. The client has now asked if the prices can be in bold and a different colour. Is there a way that I can select just the prices within the paragraph - this decription and price are within the same text frame but the prices 'appear' as though they are in a separate coloumn because of the tabs so can you draw a selection over the 'coloumn' of prices and change that text?

    Hope this makes sense - it's difficult to explain!
    Grateful for any help :icon_smile:
    Thanks Vimster

    Can you give an example of how the pricelist looks

    Grep Search this might work (?<=\t)£\d+?\.\d{2}

    Change to
    Leave Blank

    Find Formatting
    Ignore this

    Change formatting
    Click in the box and select what formatting is to change.

    It depends on the content though.

    I was thinking Grep, but I'd probably switch out the content and use a table instead. It a bit more effort to set up, but makes changes like this a breeze.

    If it's tabbed just select all the tabbed text and choose Table>Convert Text to Table.

    Thanks for the replies. I used the Table>Convert text to table - worked fine. Cheers for the tip Hanksscorpio :)
