Any character . (full stop)

We are looking for a quotation in some text. There are two such in the sample text if you wish to experiment.

At first attempt you might try

Search "\"" { . } "\""
but this will fail because every character after the opening double quote will be accepted by . - right up to the end of the line. The next element "\"" (i.e. the closing double quote) will not be found. The result is "String not found".
