I want to search some characters from Omnifind. Such as "*","+","-","~" and so on. Omnifind ignores these characters by default. So how can I achieve the requirement?

Usually there are escape characters in any software. It doesn't seem to be different on OmniFind:
Precede a character in a term with the backslash (\) escape character to find terms or phrases that contain restricted characters, such as backslashes and double quotation marks in phrases. Reserved query syntax terms can be escaped with the backslash character. For example, you can escape terms such as or and within with a backslash character."

Hope this helps,
