Description Erkki Laaneoks 2012-01-28 12:36:31 UTC
Writer does not offer option to replace something with simple new line (Shift + Enter). 
For example are needed replace all paragraph ends (Enter) with simple new line (Shift+Enter). No search and replace are available.
I think "\n" in input "Replace with" (on Find & Replace dialog) should have the meaning of simple new line (Shift + Enter) and "\p" for paragraph ending.

Manual for that:

You are right but you can do that with altsearch extension : http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/node/525

So not a defect because LO works as designed. Changed for enhancement.

Best regards.

Reproducible with LO 32bit (win10 Ent 64bit)

What is reproducible? It is an enhancement request, so why did you set is as resolved / worksforme ?

Best regards. JBF

Sorry. I make a mistake.

I make a comment accidentally, and when I ad me to CC, and save it, save the comment too.

I can confirm, that is not implemented in LO 5.2.
