How can we improve InDesign?

Improved Find/Change with Conditional Text

The reason is that the Find/Change function has a serious limitation in that it will only find text with certain conditions applied if you choose to search for ALL of the conditions applied to the text in question. That’s fine in the rare cases where I know all the conditions applied to the text that I need to find.

I want the a radio button behavior, where InDesign will find anything with a certain condition applied to it, even if there are other conditions applied as well.

    I can see your point and support it, but I think, both variants must be possible: I want to search for the »USA« condition (to use your example) as a single condition and as a combined condition.
