    Grep find/change script character issue



      I'm trying to change the FindChangeList.txt on the supplied javascript in indesign cs4 to allow me to automate some grep commands but one is causing me an issue: within indeisgn if i use the find/change tool it works fine, but on the script it doesnt.


      what i am trying to change is all instances of + (plus) within a document to ± but it seems like the script is reading it as 'nothing plus more nothing' , how do i get it to recognise the + as a symbol not as a command?


      the line i am currently using in my code is this:

      grep    {findWhat:"+"}    {changeTo:"±"}    {includeFootnotes:true, includeMasterPages:true, includeHiddenLayers:true, wholeWord:false}
