Not sure what this is called.  When I copy/paste this into the Find/Change box, it looks at it as a ^p, but that is the code for a normal end paragraph.  What is the code for the break that happens when you hit Enter on the number pad which continues the text to the next linked text box?

^m didnt do it either.

It's an uppercase M. 

 

^M

I think you are asking for column break character? That's what the numeric keypad enter adds to the text. Use ^M for a text find/change.

Thats not the same one, here is an image of the symbol.  The ^n moved the line to the next line.  The one that the Enter key on the num pad does move to the next linked text box.Capture.JPG

^M. I wrote it incorrectly and edited it immediately, but you must have been looking at it for the 30 seconds in between! Sorry!

By the way, @VicoDrive, you can find these characters on your own using the @ widget in the Find/Change dialog box. You just have to know what they are called. In your case, it's a column break.
