Hello all,

I am having some issues with my find and replace function in ID. I have tried searching through 'all documents', 'document', 'story', 'selection'. It doesn't seem to matter what I search, but it is not picking up the characters I am trying to change.

My first lot of changes I wanted to make was a question mark to an apostrophe. There are clearly a minimum of 10 changes to be made, and it is returning 0 results.

The second lot of changes was m2 to the same, but with a superscript 2. Again, there's about 6 changes I can see that it should be making, and again, it's returned a 0 result.

I have double checked a few check points too, from other posts I have seen. The table I working with isn't in master pages. And the table also isn't a locked field.

Any assistance on these would be so greatly appreciated, and it's becoming quite a problem!

Thank you,

Tahlia

Can you post a screenshot of your Find/Change dialog box?
