But Bob, she is talking about hyphens that appear in the middle of words. 
There is not a find and replace for that problem that I know about.

Here's how the manual puts it:

"Convert em dashes to double hyphens by using the find and replace dialogue
as follows:

In the find box type: ^+

In the Replace box type: -- (That is two hyphens or two dashes, depending
upon what you call that key to the right of the zero on the number row.)"



That's always worked for me.



Thanks,

Bob
