Searching for an entity

Searching for an entity

We are running Arbortext v5.3 M010. In a particular document, I know that the entity & (an ampersand) is used multiple times. However, when I search for the entity, either from the command line using the find_entity alias or using the Find dialog window, no entities are found. I can find other entities using either method. Any suggestions on how to successfully search for the ampersand entity?

Don't have Editor open in front of me, but I found these in the adepters
archives. Give them a shot:

find –m –e “&.*;”
find_entity entity

The first will find ANY but if it works for you for that, maybe you can
adapt the regex.
