Hi Klaus,

In FM 7, the Help says "\f" will find end of flow or end of table cell, 
but a search for " \f" finds every space in the document without regard 
to its position, and a search for "\f" brings up an error message.

When I have the courage to install my TCS 2 trial, I'll see what FM 9 does!
