em dash search


How does one search for an em dash in text? I tried typing two hyphens into the search, as that’s what the em dash is auto-corrected from, but it didn’t work.


Try Alt-0151 (using the number pad). If you have a tenkeyless keyboard, use character map; locate the em-dash, use “copy” then paste it into the search box.

Thanks for the suggestion, I don’t have a keypad. But I found a solution . Created an auto-corrected em dash with two hyphens and copied that into the search.
