Er ...

Let us say I have \command in the Find part of Ogrekit

If I click on \command, that selects only command and I think I  
understand your explanation as to why. What I don't understand is  
what do I do to select \command, short of clicking on one side of  
\command and sweeping across to the other side. In other words, I  
don't know what I should do to "escape the escape character" or,  
rather, to include it in the selection when I click. Is there a  
modifiying key?

Hopeful regards
