Thank you for your suggestion, it helped. Though I did it slightly
different than what you suggested because "Format" does not set
Paragraph Styles. Here's what I did - First I performed a regular
expression search and selected "Find All" which selected all the Text
which I wanted to format. Then in "More Options" I selected "Search for
Paragraph Styles" and "Current Selection Only", and then changed the
"Replace with" to "Heading 1", and then selected "Replace All".

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.
Thank you for your help it was appreciated.
