Issue with project replace

I’m editing a massive collection of recipes and need to do a quick search and replace through the entire document to get a consistant feel for the entire project.

What I need to do is search for abbreviations such as “c.”, “tsp.”, “tbsp.” etc and replace them with the proper “cup”, “teaspoon”, “Tablespoon”. Unfortunately, project replace does not seem to allow me to search for anything with a trailing period. Is there a way to get it to do so?

Try deselecting the option “Whole Words Only” and see if that works.
