    GREP: How can I find ^\*.+\* if asterisks are in multiple paragraphs?

    Schmaltzkopf Level 1

      Hi there:

      My question is as follows:

      Sample:

      *The cow jumped over the moon to find the ruin.

      The mouse ran over the cheese to get the peanut butter.*

      *The cow jumped over the moon to find the ruin.

      The mouse ran over the cheese to get the peanut butter.*

      *The cow jumped over the moon to find the ruin.

      The mouse ran over the cheese to get the peanut butter.*

       

      If I put ^\*.+\* into GREP field of Find dialog, it does not work. I am assuming it doesn't work because the two asterisks are in different paragraphs and it can only find two-asterisks-with-text-in-between if they are in the same paragraph.

      Any help would be appreciated
