To insert a character not found on a standard keyboard, click the browse button to the right of the ''Find'' or ''Change'' string. The Insert Character dialog box will appear. Select the character from the list of characters, and choose ''OK''. Note: Selecting a different font in the ''Insert Character'' dialog box will not affect the search or replacement of the text.

3. Begin the search.

Choose whether to search the current article, page, chapter or document. Choose ''Whole Word'' when it is not part of a larger word. Choose ''Case Sensitive'' to find only the text which exactly matches the capitalization of the find string. Choose ''Ignore Accents'' to find text regardless of accented characters. Click ''Find'' to begin the search.

If PageStream finds the search string, it will select the first occurrence.
