Is there a way to make numbers separated with decimal symbol automatically and non-destructive in Indesign? For example there is large numbers in my article which I'm designing now:

I have "six trillion" in number: 6000000000000 I want it to be something like this: 6,000,000,000,000 But automatically with decimal symbol for every 3 numbers, with somthin' like a Style.

  • I can do it with GREP find and replace but it's a destructive method for sure.
  • I don’t think there’s a way to do that in InDesign, no. Jan 3, 2022 at 8:27

    In InDesign, styles generally can only change the appearance of text. They can't change or add characters. (With the exception of bulleted and numbered lists, which do indeed add characters.)
