Subject Re: Is there a way to search for "..." (three dots)?

Yes, but…

Odds are your analysis configuration for the field is removing the dots.

Go to the admin/analysis page, pick your field type and put examples in
the “index” and “query” boxes and you’ll see what I mean.

You need something like WhitespaceTokenizer, as your tokenizer,
and avoid things like WordDelimiter(Graph)FilterFactory.

You’ll find this is tricky though. For instance, if you index
“…something is here”, WhitespaceTokenizer will split this into
“…something”, “is”, “here” and you won’t be able to search for 
“something” since the _token_ is “…something”.

You could use one of the other tokenizers or use one of the
regular expression tokenizers.
