Description KLEIN Stéphane 2012-03-06 01:07:46 UTC
Hi,

In MS Word I can search and replace manual break page. The pattern to match manual break page is ^m.

In LibreOffice, I don't have special pattern to match break paragraph, break page…

Regards,
Stephane

For paragraph break (and many others pattern of chars) you can use regular expressions.
Regular expressions can't be used for page break because of page break is not a character.

Ok, then it's a new feature to implement.

find&replace / other options / Text format... / tab (Text Flow)
shows a section Breaks.
That section seems to be inactive and seems to be greyed all the time. I couldn't find a way to use it or anything else to search for page breaks. I suspect that search isn't implemented at all... 
I would appreciate to be able to search for breaks!
