Find/Replace with Carriage Return


G

Guest

I'm new to working with Word documents so need some basic help please. When
using the Find/Replace feature is it possible to replace with a Carriage
Return or TAB space and if so can these be associated with characters as well
in the same replace action, eg: find letter Z then replace with <CR> + Z or
TAB + Z.

Thanks for your help
Ian.

G'Day Ian,

Unless you really _mean_ it, it is not a good idea to talk about <CR> - this
was an ASCII (13) character used with text terminals, and still meaningful
to programmers.

Do you mean a Paragraph Marker (the character that displays as "¶" in Word)?

In Find/Replace, click "More" and "Special" to see a list of special characters
that you may search for/replace with.

For example the:
2-character string "^p" represents a Paragraph Marker
"^t" TAB
"^l" Line break ...

Thank you very much Pat and Shauna,

That was exactly what I was looking for.
