In Word 2003, when I use soft returns (Shift Enter) I sometimes want to find where they are in the doc without having to turn on the Show/Hide button, I want to be able to find them in the Find Replace dialog box, but I don't see any format code options that will allow me to do that.

Thanks,

Well you could select the more button in the replace window/tab.  Then select the special button.  Next select Manual line break.

or you could type ^l  (that is a  lower case L)
