How can I find a character "-" at the end of the line in Adobe InDesign? I do not want to be at the end of the sentence/paragraph, but the line.

There's been a few similar questions on this and it generally boils down to looking at scripting, grep, or plugins. – Ryan Feb 24 '14 at 18:53
Are you trying to look for word wrap or hyphenation? Or are you looking for stray hyphens at the end of a line? – TunaMaxx Feb 24 '14 at 23:48
There hyphens in the end of the line that need another hiphen at the beginning of the next line when the word itself already has a hyphen. I need to find these cases. – dmachado Feb 25 '14 at 8:59
Sorry, don’t understand, can you paste an example? – steguozzo Mar 3 '14 at 15:47
