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
