Default Making Multiple Words Bold

Hi,



I'm not sure whether it is possible but I want to make the first words of each paragraph bold. The file is about 90 pages so it is impossible to make it one by one. So is there any way to do that like writing a macro or so? If it is possible with a macro, what should I write on macro

Here is the example of what i want

bold1 words words words
bold2 words words words
bold3 words words words

and goes on. Of course some paragraphs are longer than one line.

Thanks in advance

Hi mtk,

You can use a wildcard Find/Replace, where:
Find = ^13<*>
Replace = ^&
and you format the replacement font as bold. This will affect all except the first paragraph.

Note: This will also format the paragraph mark for all paragraphs bold. You can undo that with another wildcard Find/Replace, where:
Find = ^13
Replace = ^&
and you format the replacement font as not bold.
