In Ogrekit the \ has a special meaning because it is used to `quote' the following letter. To explicitly search for a \ you need to `quote' it; i.e., use \\. So search for
\\iftex \\hfill \\qedsymbol \\fi
and that sequence should be found.
I have no idea what is happening in TextEdit. Does it do regex?
