When I try to replace a word in PDF file with a colon (:) at the end, I get a word with with colons at both ends.

I am evaluating the trial version of Text Replacer. When I try to replace a word with a colon (:) at the end, I get a word with with colons at both ends. For example:

The text I am replacing is "Memo:" without the "". I want to replace it with "Detail" without the "" and no colon. The result is ":Detail:", note the colons at the beginning and end of the replace word.

Can this be fixed?

Thank you.
