    Hello.
    I am using Notepad++ as great tool for my hobby - which is proofreading of subtitles for tv shows and movies.
    I often use Ctrl+F tool to find wrong typed commas and dots.
    Like "Mike did it.Then he..." -< missing spacebar.
    If i could type "./?" as for looking for dot and then sign after it, that would help me a lot.
    Is it possible in Notepad++?
    Thanks for any help.

    Not sure that understand what you'd like finding.

    If it is "a dot followed by some non whitespace character", then, as a Regular expression, search for
    .\s
    a dot followed by a word character?
    .\W
    A dot followed by a question mark?
    .\?

    Please come back with a more detailed request if I didn't hit target yet.
