Searching for the escape code "\-" (a backslash followed by a hyphen without the quotes) didn't work? That's the standard code for typing a discretionary hyphen in plain-text dialog boxes. See Appendix A of the FrameMaker User Guide for a full list of dialog box codes for special characters. -Fred Ridder
