Hi - How do I search and replace text strings involving double quotes (")?  The normal syntax /p:"xxx" /r:"yyy" wouldn't work if there's a dbl quote within the text strings...

First you'll want to use the quoted regex like this:

/p:""

next put your terms inside and escape the quotes like this "".

/p:"""xxx"""

You should have 3 quotes on either site.  The other's will open / close the expression.  The inners are escaped which is why they're doubled.
