Hi I am trying to find all instances of a word that i know in in the document many times and it's says no matches found. Any ideas how to solve this? It is not in a locked layer or master page.

Many thanks

Hi F1Griffin,

I would check if the word you like to find uses one single glyph for character LATIN SMALL LETTER I WITH CIRCUMFLEX or if it uses perhaps two glyphs for the same, namely LATIN SMALL LETTER DOTLESS I with MODIFIER LETTER CIRCUMFLEX ACCENT where both glyphs are kerned together.

You could also switch from TEXT Find to GREP Find to factor in a variant.

Below I am using the "pipe" character that means OR in GREP-speak:

Check the character panel or paragraph style.

 Screenshot shows that English UK is assigned to the text. And find-change works even if no language is assigned to text. I just checked 2 minutes ago.

Language has nothing to do with find-change, it works in both cases (with or without language assigned), so your problem is elsewhere. Are you absolutely sure that the word you are searching for actually exists in your document? Your screenshot is very small and I can't read the alert message. What is it written?

I have downloaded your screen capture and opened it in Photoshop and now it is readable: you are searching the word “chaine”, but in French (I am French), it is written “chaîne” with a circumflex accent on letter i.
