    Can't find boxes with text inset that were converted from Quark

      Hello all.  This is kind of a weird one.  I have many documents that have been converted from various versions of Quark into Indesign CS5.5.  I need to find all text boxes that have a text inset of 0.139 in, which seems to be the default for text boxes that have been converted from Quark that have text inset.  I go to find/replace, choose object, and set my search criteria for inset spacing to 0.139 in, leaving all other criteria as is. It comes back and says no matches found.  If I create a new document and test it, it works fine.  Is there something I am missing?  Is this a "bug" due to a converted Quark document? I have tried unchecking all object attributes except inset spacing to no avail.


      Doing this by hand is VERY time consuming as one would imagine.


      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
