Chapter 25. Find and Change > Specifying the Text

Specifying the Text

After setting the search range, type or paste the characters to be searched for in the Find What field. InDesign remembers the last 15 searches you’ve performed, and you can select them in the Previous Search popup menu (just to the right of the field). If you want to replace characters, type or paste the characters into the Change To field. This field also has a Previous Search menu with previous replacement characters.

To search and replace special characters—like auto page numbers or discretionary hyphens—you can choose them from the Metacharacter popup menu, to the right of the Find What and Change To fields. InDesign also has four wildcard characters: Any White Space Character (like a tab or space), Any Character, Any Digit, and Any Letter. These are also listed in the Metacharacters popup menu.
