Implementing "Grep styles" like a "Character style"
Grep styles deserve to be used like any existing style.
1 - Having a panel where we can create/modify/ delete any grep style (similar use as the Character style panel)
2 - Having the Paraph.style/Grep styles section revamped.
There, a drop down list allows the user to select existing Grep styles (If any)
3 - a "+" button allows to add and implement some more Grep styles
This allows to use multiple grep styles
The added value is to create only once a list of grep style actions. They can then be connected to paragraph styles easily.
This need is coming from several issues that I'm am facing today:
Paragraph styles that are already based on a specific paraph.style cannot be based on another paragraph style where the Grep style could be. Therefore, the grep styles actions have to be written down on all of them. (waste of productivity)
Fonts almost never have all the bold/ italic/etc. properties. Therefore, depending on the font, we need to adjust the target of the modification, for the same words. Being able to duplicate/ modify a Grep style would be a huge save of time.
