Default Word 2010: Wildcards Replace

Here I've got a list of texts like:

[a]
[b]
[c]

Supposed I only want the words inside the [] brackets to be yellow-coloured. How should I type in the replace box?



If I type:

\[*\]
and set the Font Color to be yellow.
The words including the [] brackets will be yellow.
I know I can do another wildcards replace by setting only [] to be black-coloured.

But is there a one-step way to achieve the effect?

Hi tifanide,

Unfortunately, the answer is no. However, you could expedite the process with a macro.

Oh... I see. Macros are better choices always, customised.
