It might help if you told us what version of InDesign you're using and what computer platform you're on.
If you're on a Mac, you could use the Character Viewer and search for fonts which already contain that glyph. It would also help if you knew what Unicode value that glyph is.
Ya a bit retarded today I have sorted that problem all the same, thanks
It's helpful to give the details and the solution you arrived at so that others who find your question will benefit from your work.
So don't say, "Thanks, I got it!" Instead say, "Thanks, I solved it. HERE'S HOW:"
Think of it as Paying It Forward.
Point taken! as I said I was busy on several African languages for one book, deadline Sunday so I apologise for not updating the people who are so ready for giving there help and advice.
The truth is I hit 'Alt s' (on a mac CS5) one keystroke and there it was! copy and paste into 'Find and replace you get 'ß'
But the publisher had supplied the various variations required in some languages in the Glyphs pallet and I do not know what happened to make this work.
Any body know?
