    I converted your drawing to 2007 format so I could open it, ran several tests and cannot get FIND to locate any of those %% character strings. I am completely at a loss on how to figure this one out.

    I even ran Audit and -purge, got rid of a bunch of regapps and all extra left-overs. Still Nothing.

    There is 2 solution about that

    1. Install alternative cad program ( thats autocad forum so because of that i dont want to give a name program but foxies know which program i m talking about from china ) and easily you can use find and replace all

    2.Thanks to member ymg3 ,you can load lisp to change values what you want.
    Lisp command is ymg3 as u know.

    (defun c:ymg3 ()
    (setq ss1 (ssget "ALL" (list (cons 0 "TEXT"))))
    (if ss1
    (repeat (setq n (sslength ss1))
    (setq en (ssname ss1 (setq n (1- n)))
    enl (entget en)
    otxt (cdr (assoc 1 enl))
    ntxt (vl-string-subst (chr 216) "%%O%%C%%O" otxt)
    enl (subst (cons 1 ntxt) (assoc 1 enl) enl)
    )
    (entmod enl)
    )
    )
    )

    The problem is solved i think

    OK, then. If you want to go that route..........

    Sorry, I know this is an old thread - but similar question.
    Number of years ago, people used a non std font 'ISO3098B'. It had special characters such %%130 to represent the character I. That is, people wanted a simple single stroke font such as ISOCP - but for certain drawings, the character I had to drawn with the top and tail (serifs I think they're called)

    And as we all know, when the drawing is passed onto someone else who does not have this font - the special character is displayed as a ?

    These days Engineers don't care if the I is not displayed with the serifs. How can I use the Find utility to replace %%130.
    Tried using `? and `%`%130
    The old 'chgtext' lisp routine works, but only on straight text and not Attributes, etc

    Thanks

    I received an answer from another source, so thought I'd post it here in case anyone is interested.

    Double click the text entity that contains the special character, so it opens the text editor. Highlight the character that is displayed as a question mark, and copy it to the clip board.
    Then run the Find command, click in the 'Find What' field, then Paste. What you pasted won't be visible. Then continue with the find/replace as normal.

    Thanks
