Evan,
 
Unfortunately you won't find much else in the manual related to this subject
aside from my exerpt.

Thanks, Pratik.  I will read this section, but just from reading what you
sent, it doesn't sound as though this will let you manipulate page breaks
directly.  Say, there was an extra one, or one was missing, for instance.
I'm not having that need now, but no OCR is perfect, and I am sure that I
will need to do that at some point.  I can do that easily in Word, of
course, but if I don't have to switch programs just for that, so much the
better.  But I will check out this section of the manual.

Evan,
 
Here is an exerpt from page 135 of the manual that deals with special
character searches.
 
"Searching for Special Characters

        In the Find text box (ALT+F) in the Find dialog, you can type the
following to search for special characters:

        \t finds horizontal tabs.

        \n finds a new line. A new line exists only at the end of a
paragraph or on a blank line.

        \\ finds backslashes.

        \p finds text at the beginning or end of a page. For example, -\p
would find pages whose last character was a hyphen, and \p- would find pages
whose first character was hyphen. Be aware that searches using this wildcard
may fail due to the presence of headers and footers."


 
HTH.
 
Pratik

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Format Characters in K1000


I thought since I'm working on a book for Bookshare, that I would ask this
here rather than on the K1000 list.  With features such as rank spelling,
poorly scanned pages and rerecognition, the prospect of editing and fixing
up a kes file, then translating it into rtf for submission is much more
feasible than with an ark file.
 
I was wondering how to enter characters such as tab, hard return and page
break into the search box.  Apparently the caret method of MSWord isn't the
way.  Is there a list of these somewhere in the docs?  If so, could someone
just point me to it, as I'm not sure where to look.
 
Evan
