As standard I mark places in my texts which need further work with five asterisks: *****.

I have now found that The Brain will not find these notes when I search for *****.

I'm guessing that * is used by search as a wildcard. (Guessing because: who knows? Documentation is NOT a luxury, guys!).

So, does anybody know how I can search for a string that includes a wildcard? I've tried "*****" and \***** without success.

Thanks in advance - I don't fancy having to work through every note by hand :-(
not sure but did you try quotes ... "*****"

Thanks for posting.  I recently documented searching for special characters in the notes as a feature request.  Sorry - quotes won't do the trick .
