moderated How can I enter a vertical tab in a search box?


Tim Ford
 

I am trying to help someone who is computer challenged.  He has lots of vertical tabs in a document.  For some reason I am not able to get his computer to enter that vertical tab into a global search and replace.  How can I manually enter the vertical tab?

In Microsoft Word, you can toggle paragraph marks on and off with CTRL-SHIFT-NUMBER ROW 8.  I suspect you accidentally pressed this command. Press it again and they will go away.

Hi all,

 

Using Jaws 2018 and MS Word 2010, Jaws has started saying “paragraph mark” at the beginning of each paragraph. I don’t know how I accidentally turned this on, but I don’t remember the key commands or menu location to turn it off.  any help would be appreciated. 

            thanks,  Marla

Hi, Tim. The character code for a Vertical Tab is decimal code 11. Since this is Control K, and Control K is a command in Word, you cannot enter it this way.

 

Instead, open the Search and Replace with CONTROL plus H.

 

Then, in the Find What dialog, enter ^11

 

The Karat is the shift of number six on the numbers row below the function keys.

 

Then, Tab to the Replace All button, and press ENTER.

 

All the replacements will be made, and all the Vertical Tabs will be removed.

 

Press the Escape Key twice, save the document, and all the Vertical Tabs should be gone.
