I'd need to replace all the "m2" in the document with the "m" followed by (the little) apex "2" (Unicode: 00B2). Can't use the glyphs tab because it's not a matter of replacing an existing glyph but to turn a text into another text that ALSO has an unicode character. Very few about this available online.... only me having this need? Workarounds? (p.s.: need to apply a "replace all" because it's a huge amount of pages. Thnx.

Sorry... it works. The correct syntax is Find:m2, Replace:m\xK2. Thanks
