Hi, It seems that I cannot search for punctuation in Advanced Search and Replace. I want to replace an N-dash and quote, with an M-dash and quote. Is is possible to seach for punctuation?
You should be able to find and replace those.
I just tested it out and it worked.
The attached image shows the settings I used.
It works now, but didn’t before.
I have a similar problem when trying a basic search. It finds alpha and numeric values, but not punctuation.
The general search is definitely different. It uses the SQLite full text search engine which does ignore punctuation.
