Can't you just find two consecutive numbers in the custom font and replace with a single character in the custom font all in the Text (or Grep) tab of the Find/Change dialog? You don't need the Glyph tab. I've done quite a few character replacements, usually from one font to another, and I've never used the Glyph tab.
Hi Peter and thanks for the quick reply
erm yes, I've never used glyphs myself either, it's how they set this font up here and currently load the characters, before my time
I'm investigating now how to call up the characters in the text or grep replace windows
At present they're called up as what I think of as extended characters so ALT+12, and so on, at present I don;t see how to emulate that in the replace window, to do multiple key strokes basically ...
Yes, you're right Peter, when I load the glyphs into ID, then copy and paste the glyph into the text replace box, it gives me the special character needed, trying to find the right keystokes was what was holding me up
Thanks for the steer
