Bug ID: 102374
Summary: Find & Replace - Regular Expressions not recognized in
Version: 184.108.40.206 rc
Hardware: x86-64 (AMD64)
OS: Windows (All)
Is similar to 37494 and I agree with 38261 but this is specific to Writer and
using a regular expression in the Replace field.
I am trying to change the end of paragraph (reg exp $) with a tab (\t) It
finds the end of paragraph just fine when I put the $ into the Find field and
have regular expression checkbox on. I put \t into the Replace field and it
changes the end of paragraph to a slash and a t. I have tried different
regular expressions in the Find field and all that I have tried seem to work.
I have tried \t, \n, \u0009, \x09 in the Replace field and each time I get the
characters, as if the regular expression box was not checked. I read another
post that said that Replace ALL worked when Replace did not. I tried that also
but still got characters.
O a;sp tried copying a tab from somewhere else in the document and pasting it
into the Replace field. Did not work.
Did finally find a workaround but it does not eliminate the bug. Workaround:
1. Manually place a Tab in the document.
2. Select and Copy that Tab.
3. Select area to be searched.
4. open Find and Replace dialog box.
5. Type in $ in Find field.
6. Make sure Current Selection and Regular Expression boxes are checked.
7. Click FIND ALL.
8. CTRL-V to paste the copied Tab into all the Find All places.
