You may not be able to. When I enter an em dash in the search box by entering Alt+0151 (on the numeric keypad), it finds em dashes, en dashes, and hyphens.
Interesting. Even if I get all the other variations of the dash, as long as it includes the em-dash, that would work for me. However, what am I doing wrong in the search box...I can't duplicate what you suggested in your response. Do I open up the search box, and then press the ALT key and then type in 0151 (I'm a very new Adobe Reader user). I tried that and can't get it to work.
Thanks for responding!

Try just entering a regular hyphen.
But to do what I suggested, keep the Alt key held down while typing "0151" on the numeric keypad (not the numbers on the top row of the keyboard). This is for WIndows, not the Mac.
Thanks! I had to try a few things on my laptop here because the ALT key wouldn't allow me to do anything. What I did was type in the hypen in the search box, then press ctrl and M (I have the numeric keypad imbedded into my alphabet keypad). It searches on all variations of the hyphen, including the em-dash and that's good enough for my purposes! Thanks for the tip! You're very helpful.
