AutoCAD Find/Replace can not find strings with a Dash in them?

Recommended Posts

AutoCAD 2010 Find/Replace feature.

 

I have notice that when I try to find/replace a string with a dash "-" in it that AutoCAD will not find it.

If I remove the dash from the string AutoCAD Find/replace will work. Is there a fix for this

problem?

 

Thank you,

I don't have any such problem and I use FIND often. AutoCAD 2011 though. I don't remember 2010 having any issues at all.

 

Have you tried the FILTER tool, just as an alternative option?

2009 LT can do it. No filters. Sure you are searching the "Entire Drawing"?

 

I know there are a few special characters that give the Find thingy a fit, but "-" isn't one of them.

I have no trouble doing the above to text or mtext in AutoCad 2010.

Looks like we can't find a problem yet. Never had the issue so it's hard to figure what the fix might be.
