I HAVE used this feature, and that is what I was referring to as replacing all
instances of an italic in a layout. It is at best a workaround, for anytime you
reapply a text style you have to complete another search.

What I am really looking for, I guess, is a way to define a style in a layout
program in which I can specify that italicizing the style will change it into a
different typeface (and I would also like the ability to do the same for bolding).
