Hi,

Lets say that you have a word file of 50000 words containing a huge number of figures (as in financial statements) allover the document. The text font is Times New Roman of all text. My question: Is there any method to change the font of (figures only) from Times New Roman to any other font automatically?

Thank you

At the least, you should be able to perform ten separate find-and-replace sequences (one for “0”, one for “1”, and so on).

Edit: Perhaps you could also create a macro out of the above, in order to expedite the operation should you need to repeat it.

Let me know if you find a quicker way—this is a good question!

Great and logical solutions! However it did not work with my file. I Find Any Digit "^#" and Replace with Format: "Font: xxx". Word ignores any digit within Arabic text! I made a dummy test on English text including figures and it worked successfully but it did not work for my file.

Thank you so much
