Find problem

Post by dpmeyer » 2007-07-11 11:16:59

When I type a word found in a document in the find box, I get no results, but if I paste the same word, it's found. The word in question has an apostrophe, but others behave the same way. It doesn't matter if it's a simple find or a powerfind. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

I would bet that you are having troubles because a smart/curly quote is not matched to a dumb/plain quote. When you type into the Find panel our QuickFix feature will smarten/curl your quotes for you. You can turn this feature off in our QuickFix preferences if you like. Or you can use the Undo menu to revert the quote to a dumb/plain quote, after it has been transformed.
