Searching for Unicode Characters

Post by jsese @ asiatype »

Hi! I'm doing a search and replace of unicode characters (on the reserve space). My input is in UTF-8 so i first convert it to UTF-16LE then i search for
\xEED3 and needs to replace it with a string '[0xEED3]'. Then convert it back to UTF-8.

However, when I use \xEED3 in the find panel, nothing changes. How do I correct this problem?

Are you using the Unicode replace filter? If so, use the \x{EED3} format.

Did you try \x{EED3}, and both the Unicode search/replace filter, and the Perl pattern search/replace filter with the UTF-8 option? If this doesn't work for you, please send us a sample file.
