Dear Colleagues,

I received a doc file with codes between curly brackets e.g

{field} must be increment of {increment}

I need to use the Find and Replace in word to select all occurrences of {} with the included text and replace it with the same but applying Trados nontranslatable style or any other formatting.

In Find enter: \{*\}
For Replace, just click More, click within the Replace with field, select the Format dropdown, Style and choose the style. You don't need to enter anything in the field.
Select the Use wildcards checkbox.
