I have a manuscript to edit in which the name 'Genevieve' repeatedly appears. Unfortunately, she's French, and she should read Geneviève, with an accent on the penultimate 'e'. Does anyone know of a way to do a search and replace in Word (Office XP, Windows ME) using an accented word? For some reason you can't paste into search and replace, or at least I can't! I can obviously do a manual paste job, but it will take a lot longer that way.
is what I always use for any out of the ordinary characters I need. Quick and simple to use as I can never remember key combinations. Could you also put it in the dictionary once you have it typed correctly? Hope this helps.
Thanks, Tog, brilliant. Thanks, too, -pops-, but I couldn't get the Alt thing to work, but I think I'm doing something wrong, 'cause I seem to remember using that method for something else years ago. Cheers!
