Line break in a code replacement text
« on: June 07, 2013, 09:18:35 AM »
Is it possible today or in the future to have a line break (CR/LF) within a Code replacement text? Some character that represent a tap on the return key?

Can you tell me why you would need to insert a hard return in your text?  Please furnish an example or two.

This has been on my wish list for years  :)

http://forums.camerabits.com/index.php?topic=5388.msg24629#msg24629

Example?  Let's say the Headline contains this text:

abc
def

and you want to search for CR/LF and replace it with a space to get:

abc def

or perhaps visa versa.

I'd also through in the ability to search and replace the tab character too.

Deven,

The original poster was asking about Code Replacement.  Not Find & Replace.

Try putting {nl} in your Replacement text.  Code Replacement works with variables and the {nl} variable evaluates to a new line.  {tab} evaluates to a tab character.

HTH,
