Attribute sensitive PowerFind Pro macro not working

When I run the macro
Find '.', 'Eua'
and the period is times, it selects all characters no matter what font. When I do the same thing in the "Find" dialogue (Find all) with attribute sensitive and PowerFind Pro selected, it works. What am I doing wrong, or is this something that doesn't work yet? Thanks.

Most likely the problem is that the font attribute has been culled from the expression. This culling occurs when you apply an attribute in a document that matches the attribute defined by the already applied style. To apply the Times font without it being culled do the following:

1. Select your Find expression.
2. Use the menu Format > Paragraph Styles > Remove Paragraph Styles (this will remove the Normal style, which defines Times).
3. Now apply the Times fonts.

It works

Thanks -- it seems to be working now.
