They are supposed to have no spaces between the periods. You can simply search 
for three periods with spaces between them and replace with three periods 
without spaces. I usually do a second search for two periods and a space 
between them and replace with two periods together, because sometimes they scan 
as two periods together and then a space followed by a third period. That way, 
I get them all for sure.

  Hi you all, can you quickly refresh my memory, are elipsis supposed to be the 
three preiods with no spaces between them in files or left as a . space . space 
.  A book I am preproofing before I submit uses a lot of them, and I mean a lot 
of ... to represent a ... of things.

  Thanks, naturally I didn't pay attention to the discussion regarding this 
topic before, sigh.

  thanks.

  If I need to put the periods together, is there a quick Find and replace I 
could do to get the job done well and quick.

  Thanks.
