Description VincentYu 2019-11-25 00:22:18 UTC
Changing font-type with regex find&replace, if a "\n" is present in the document of the find font-type, it is replaced with a newline formatting.
Expected behavior: same "\n" but changed to target font-type.
Find regex: (.+)
Find font-type: Times New Roman
Replace regex: $1
Replace font-type: Courier New

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create a document of text containing: "this is a test\n.Hello!"
2.find&replace with regex: find (.+) current font-type replace $1 other font-type
3.replace-all in find-replace dialog

Actual Results:
this is a test

Expected Results:
this is a test\n.Hello!

Reproducible: Always
