This is basically a tool for things like bolding particular words and phrases, but it isn't really "Advanced". The formatting options are essentially B/I/U. It does not allow you to turn words or phrases into titles, subtitles, or headings. Its support for regular expressions is also poor, so that you cannot, say, match groups of characters and move them around, like matching all characters before and after a comma and reversing them, which is to say you can't match (LAST), (FIRST) and then reformat the line to read FIRST LAST. It also provides no way to match a subset of a phrase (in my case, all text between colons) and then preserve just the match in the replacement. So, not bad for what it does -- bulk bolding and italicizing -- but what it does is less than the name suggests.

Very handy, especially finding and replacing according to formatting. By default, my only option was to download as an MS Word doc or use RegEx search. Anyway, well worth $6.

This worked an absolute treat and love the use of it! Thank you so much for building this short-cut! Such a time saver for me when I spent half a day replacing capital letters with bolds for definitions in a contract !!!

Is it not possible to change specific font (i.e. Calibri 12 Bold) to i.e. Heading 1 style? Is it not possible to change other fonts than the default fonts (my document contained Monteserrat font, could not change/choose...).

Tried to get it to run on an already open Doc and did not succeed. Cool product but needs to come with instructions other than "Find&Replace>Find&Replace"

Installed this just so I could rate it one star after reading the description and comments because charging to search and replace after the first 30 invocations is so delightfully scummy. I was considering using this since the standard search and replace can handle escape sequences in the input but not the output.

Hi brother, so it's called a trial. One can evaluate the add-on to it's best using 30 attempts. Nothing is free in the world. 6$ is a one time fee and not a subscription. You must realize the difficulty in building a addon. Remember to help someone for a good cause.
