    Search characters (2000/SR 1)

    How do I search for 5 tildes (~~~~~) and replace with a manual line break (alt+enter)?
    Thanks,

    A tilde is a "special character" since it is used to signify the "literal" of wildcards:
    ~* searches for *
    ~? searches for ?
    Thus:
    ~~ is to search for the ~
    for 5 tildes use 10 tildes
    ~~~~~~~~~~

    replace with
    <alt> 0010 (hold alt while typing 0010 from NUM keypad)
