Replacing Carriage Returns?

Postby bpobiak » Thu Oct 21, 2004 12:57 am

I'm trying to do a simple replace list starting with finding the CR- in my Hex Editor it shows as 013.

Setting Easy Pattern then perl then exact as the Find Type, I've tried [cr],[return],\013,\n,[CRLF] and any other reference I can find in your documentation and it errors: Find String for "Replace list ......" is blank.
for that first line item.

What is the proper procedure? What am I doing wrong?

The problem is not the file or the find type - it is the way you are using the search/replace list.

Is the top entry blank? Are any rows blank?
