"\n" does not function, same "Regular Expressions" checked
how to seek characters "CRLF"
>word start and end characters
These work fine which is why [x]Whole Word Only isn't available for RegEx searches.
>you must use ( and ) without slashes
That's because SCFIND_POSIX is always set. The exception is listed.
The Ctrl+R Replace Dialog by the TextFX plugin provides an active list of the RegEx expressions at the top which include ^line begin and line end$. The Ctrl+R Dialog also provides multi line search and replace in which you can put returns and tabs directly without using RegEx.
I have the same problem with both \n not working as well as ^ and $.
what's the right regex? (beginning of line and end of line, as well as the aforementioned new line)?
Thanks a lot. THis is a fantastic project.
same problem here with v3.2
please help us, as basically it takes 90% of the uselesness away from this application if i cannot do find/replace on newlines and other special characters
I can't get any regex to work in the search/replace.
I can't get any regex to work in the search/replace. Seems to be non-functional.
It is functional. Maybe you're just using it wrong way?
Notepad++ supports regex syntax (with some exceptions) described here: http://scintilla.sourceforge.net/ScintillaDoc.html#Searching
The only exception to the document known to me is that:
for region start and end, you must use ( and ) without slashes (as described in the document above).
Note that i never used word start and end characters, because i never needed it, so i'm not sure if they are correctly described in the document.
You can search for CRLF.
It's quite easy, and it fits to the regexp specifications:
As an example: search for "end$" will match all lines ending with "end".
