I've written a long document and just read the branding guidelines that says the 'e' at the start of a word needs to be italicized, e.g. eBahgum, the e is italics and Bahgum isn't. I've written this loads of times in my doc so want to do a find and replace just to change the e to italics.

You can do this in two Replaces:

  1. ctrl+h to bring up the Find and Replace dialog

  2. Enter eBahgum in the Find what: text box

  3. Place the cursor in the Replace with: text box

  4. Click the More button

  5. Click the Format button and select Font...

  6. Set Font style: to Italic and click OK enter image description here

  7. Click Replace All - all instances of eBahgum will now be in italics

  8. Change Find what: to Bahgum

  9. Place the cursor in the Replace with: text box

  10. Click the Format button and select Font...

  11. Set Font style: to Regular and click OK enter image description here

  12. Click Replace All again

All instances of Bahgum will now be normal again, leaving the e in italics

Thanks Shevek. Worked like a dream. Found that I didn't even need to go into format. Just clicked ctrl+i in the Replace text box. – K Pinsiff Nov 1 '11 at 15:11
