I have a question on formatting a text multiple times in Writer. Here is my situation: I have a file which has a set of text like Date:<insert date here> separated by new lines every time. There might be over 100's of these in the file, now I want to format them to Headings, would there be an easy way to do so without doing each and every single one of them by hand? I can try a Search and replace with Regexp but not sure if I will be able to just change the formatting, while also reverting to the original text.

There is. In the Find & Replace dialogue, put "&" in the "Replace with" box - to indicate that you want the string found to be put back in place. With the cursor in the "Replace with" box, click Format... (in the More Options area) and select the text format you wish to apply. Ideally, you ought to want to apply a character style instead, but I don't see any obvious way to do this.

I trust this helps.
