Position text cursor after a specific character

Hello @ccstone and others,

Some months ago you demonstrated a technique to move the text cursor to a specific character in an input box, by inserting a temporary line break. This is a great technique that I have already used in some macros.

Is there a way to enhance this technique so that the next occurrence of the specific character will be navigated to (so that I can repeat the action in the same input box)?

Thank you in advance!


The only approach I can think of, is to replace each found character with a placeholder and to replace all placeholders with the original character at the end (of the paragraph/editing session).

Does someone have another idea?
