Bold Text in Adobe InDesign


New Member
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}

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.

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