Search & Replace with special characters

Post by Temcat » Sat Oct 07, 2017 3:03 am

Is it possible to search for and replace special characters like ^p for paragraph break and ^l for line break?

This is not yet possible in FlexiPDF but on our wishlist for the future.

Nice to know that it's at least planned. That functionality is really needed because it takes a lot of time to delete, add, or replace para breaks in text boxes one by one when preparing for export to CAT tools. Regular expressions would help here too, because sometimes I only need to perform the operation on some breaks but not on others based on the content surrounding them.
