Bulk reformat font weight and colour in indesign


Question

Ive added text boxes to each page of an indesign document. The text content is all correct, but now i want to bulk change the weight of the font and the colour of the text.

Can this be done or would i need to go to each page highlight the text box and change each one manually ?

All the text boxes will be changes to the same font weight and colour, there are none that i want to keep in another style / colour.

That can be done fairly easily using Find/Change. Adobe built in some little known, but VERY powerful features.

There's this tutorial from adobe, but it's a bit wordy: https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/find-change.html But it explains all the different features available in find/change.

This one is a bit more of a "quick read" without as much detail and relating to color instead of font, but it gives you the idea of what you can do. https://designerhelp.wordpress.com/tag/indesign-change-color/

Let me know if you need a more step-by-step for specifically what you want to do.
