Our client often supplies Word documents with parenthesis representing a check box, example: ( ). From this we need to create a form that has a checkbox (a glyph in Universal News Comm). In QuarkXpress one can search for this in the font used and replace as another character or glyph in another font. I have tried all possible permutations in the Find/Change menu to accomplish this and so far have come up with nothing. Worse, searching for ( ) with two spaces between only finds the two spaces! This is very frustrating and it is tedious to change dozens of these one at a time cutting and pasting. So, am I missing anything in the Find/Change that will accomplish this?
If using GREP, you need to "escape" the parentheses by adding a backslash, like this: \( or \) -- or you can choose them from the @menu. You can set the formatting for both find and change in the appropriate fields in the dialog (click the magnifiers next to find format or change format).
Took me a bit to figure it out from the answer, but that worked. Thanks.
