pages – Make all occurrences of string superscript

Spread the love


I'm currently using Pages to write a rather long essay and have run into an annoying problem I can't seem to find the answer to. I have included a bibliography in my document and have referenced the bibliography elsewhere in the essay with [1] where 1 is the book number I am referencing. Here is an example sentence:


Here we see , “the quick brown fox”[1], jumps over the “Lazy dog”[2].

My intention is to format the sentence like this:

Here we see , “the quick brown fox”[1] , jumps over the “Lazy dog”[2].

Whilst I understand you can select the text, click Format, Font, Baseline and select Superscript; this would take an extremely long time to do as there are around 100 places where I would need to do this.

Is there a way to find and replace a string, e.g. [1] with [1], throughout the whole document?
