Replace with <space of your choice>$0<space of your choice>
$0 is the marker for found text when you are not using parentheses to break waht you find into chunks to be dealt with separately.
The plus sign is a grep metacharacter, to find it in a search use: \+
Find what: =|<|>|\+
Replace with: $0
The replace translates as [space] [found text] [space]
Use this line in Find option: \+|\=|<|>
Use this line in Replace option: <space>$0<space>

Later on I may add more characters to the list say % or ≥ ±
How does grep apply an 'or' to each symbol

Sorry, it seems I just add more |. I couldnt work out why + and = have a backslash:
Ive just noticed I cant have more that one 'or' as it says it cant find anything:
Enter the vertical bar in your search by selecting the Special Character > Match > Or
Also, as mentioned before, use \+
Thanks again guys, nice one..
You might want to use a class instead of the "or" syntax.
[+=<>] means find any of the characters inside the brackets, and you don't need to "escape" them inside a class as they are interpreted as literals, not operators. To add another symbol, just add it indide the brackets.
