I see, you wanted to use the literal word as a chunk expression. But you surely know this is not valid in LC, and will have to use the wordOffset or something similar so you can get an actual valid chunk.

what is wrong with this:

if line 5 of fld "WHAT" contains "only" then
      
set the textColor of "only" in line 5 of fld "WHAT" to red
          end
if

???

I would like to set certain phrases in a sentence to a different

textColor to the other words . . .

. . . should be dead
easy.
