I have a document that I exported from a PDF file to an RTF and then edited it in LibreOffice Writer. Adobe Acrobat Pro exported a bunch of non-breaking hyphens that I want to replace with regular hyphens. I have been unable to find a way to do this other than the brute force method of searching by eye to find each one and replacing it by hand.
If I copy a non-breaking hyphen into a text editor I see that the character is ‘AD’ but I’ve tried all kind of ways to search for that and it doesn’t find it. I’ve tried copying the non-breaking hyphen and pasting it into the Find box in the Find & Replace dialog. I’ve tried inserting it into the Find & Replace dialog using Ctrl+Shift±. I’ve tried the regular expression \U00AD. Nothing seems to work. Any ideas?
I’m using LibreOffice Writer version 22.214.171.124 on Windows 7.
