Bud, Below my signature are directions for finding and replacing text in Kurzweil. I'm pasting this from the Kurzweil manual. You can press control h to go to the dialog box to find and replace text. I hope this will help.
Monica Willyard Replacing TextThere are two ways to replace text: by specifying text and choosing Replace in the Find dialog, or by choosing Replace directly from the Edit menu. In either case, the Find and Replace dialog opens and lets you search for any text string and replace it with a text string you specify.
About the Find and Replace DialogThe Find and Replace dialog box is similar to the Find dialog, but it contains three additional options: a Replace With text box, and the Replace All and Replace Permanently commands. When you first access the Find and Replace dialog, the cursor is in the Find combo box. If you opened this dialog from the Find dialog, the text you specified for the search is in this text box. The Find combo box also contains a list of up to the last ten words or phrases used in previous searches. Use the UP/DOWN arrows to retrieve a word or phrase from the list.
To open the Find and Replace dialog: Use one of the following methods: Open the Edit menu and choose Replace or press ALT+E+R. Or press the Replace shortcut key CONTROL+H. Or choose the Replace command (ALT+R) in the Find dialog box. To replace text:You can find and replace text or have specific text in the document already selected. 1. In the Find and Replace dialog, press TAB to go to the Replace With text box or press ALT+H.
2. Type the replacement text. 3. Press ALT+R.If you have text selected in the document, the text in the Replace With text box takes the place of the selected text.

To specify the directions of your search and replacement:In the Find and Replace dialog, you can select any of the following options: Find Next, Find Previous, or Start at Top. You can find descriptions for these options in the previous section, Searching for Text.
To replace text throughout the entire document:1. In the Find and Replace dialog, press ALT+H to go to the Replace With text box.
2. Type the replacement text. 3. Press ALT+A.This replaces all occurrences of the Find string from the current position to the end of the document. When the replacement is complete, the cursor is at the position from which you accessed the dialog. Kurzweil 1000 tells you the number of replacements made.
To permanently replace text throughout Kurzweil 1000: In the Find and Replace dialog box, press ALT+P.The Replace Permanently command behaves like Replace All, but it also adds the correction to the current corrections list. Only Whole Word matches can be used as permanent corrections.
