Hi All,

Can you explain how this would be used, is the end goal to find a some stuff restricting the search to Tables, or is it something else. It would really help if you can share how you plan to use this new GREP code for tables.

Thanks
Javed

    I think the problem is more generic… in the @ menu (in Find/Change), there is a Markers submenu with many different things people need to search for in Type, including "anchored objects." You should add "Tables".

    This would be very helpful because if you have many tables in your document, you may want to use Find/Change to find them, one at a time.

    It would be even better if you could use Find/Change to search for all the tables and then apply a table style to them! :-)

    Hi Javed,
    well, we can make many settings with this code, such as make a style to table directly, convert all tables to text by one GREP query not by Script, keep or put a space before and after table (because when we cleaning up the text it's delete any space before & after the table), ...etc.

    Thanks
    Dhafir
