Have you tried copying and pasting the character (from the text) into the Find field in the Find & Replace panel

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Probably the quickest way to get an answer is to copy some of that text into a new publisher document and upload it to the forum

Cutting and pasting works for me but that text is in Myriad Pro which I do not have so the text was changed to Arial for me.

Someone with Myriad Pro should be able to follow up on this for you as it looks font specific

Just to make it even more complicated, I work on an iMac with UK keyboard but also have a German iMacAir. you would imagine that the characters on the German machine would be the same as the UK one if the keyboard is set to UK, but it seems not. Two distinctly different characters which look identical.

So not resolved. I am now on my iMac. I copy the character from the text ’ then past it into Find - result nothing.

On save the file then open it on the MacBook Air, copy the same character, then past in find and it works perfectly. How can this be?

Um, scratching my head! The video clip was using a UK keyboard and everything seems okay.

As a quick test, can you take a look at the Unicode for the character on both your iMac and MacBook Air just to check they are the same on both and there isn't anything odd happening between the two different keyboard layouts that might somehow impact the character?

On my MacBook Pro with UK Keyboard I see the character as Unicode U+2019.
