Unicode characters can be inserted in the edited document using the 
Character Map tool available on the Tools menu. It allows you to select 
one of the available fonts, it displays all the characters covered by 
the selected font and it allows you to insert Unicode characters in the 
document and to copy them to the clipboard for a future paste operation. 
You can read about this tool in the User Manual:


You can find and replace any Unicode character using the Find/Replace 
dialog (menu Find -> Find/Replace). You have to enter directly the 
Unicode character in the "Text to find" and "Replace with" fields of the 
Find/Replace dialog. You cannot enter the code of the character, for 
example \uB031 because that is not supported in the current version of 
<oXygen/> but it is planned for a future version. In order to see the 
character rendered correctly in the fields of the dialog the font for 
text components set in the user preferences must cover that character. 
The font for text components is set in Options -> Preferences -> Fonts:


You can check that the font for text components covers your character 
using the Character Map tool.

The Find/Replace dialog is presented here:
