RE: Help! Find/Replace crashing FM553 Win95

Sorry, I cannot help.  Am only able to commiserate that it's happened to
me when I global search on a particular paragraph tag and, once found, I
attempt to replace the selection with a text entry.  Result: Crash with
Adobe error message/number to e-mail.

	It's late at night and I don't have time for this "stuff".

	Win95  FM553

	In Find/Replace:

	Find text: "string "  (is "XXXS ")

	Replace text: *nothing*

	There are perhaps 100 occurrences in the document.  I have tried
	making other text strings -- it doesn't seem to make a
difference what
	the text content is.  It also does NOT matter if the text is
plain or
	superscripted (see below).

	You can Find/Change perhaps 2-3 dozen times before it crashes.
If you
	try to do Change All In Document, it crashes immediately.  The
	takes down FM, but the PC is okay.  It generates an error file
to send
	to Adobe.

	I have not seen this mentioned before.  Did I miss it?

	ALTERNATIVES??  Assuming that there is no workaround other than
	556, my goal is:  The original document is in WordPerfect 8.  I
	trying to capture the superscript information in such a way that
I can
	apply the superscripts in FM using a Character Tag.  In WP8, I
	their find/replace to find SuperscriptOn, position before it,
and put
	in a unique string ("string ").  I do other stuff too and then
	into FM.  Then in FM, I capture the character tag with Copy
	I Find "string *\>" (wildcards on) and replace By Pasting.  All
	DOES work great!  Then, I am simply trying to get rid of the
	by replacing it with nothing -- that is when it dies.

	Any ideas of an alternative approach.  Am I being stupid?
