Does it mean that you can both:
- search for tabs using \t expression and also
- replace any symbol with tab using \t expression

With regular expression checked I searched for /t and as test replaced with a. I believe the opposite direction will work since /t is the escape sequence for tab. The /t usage dates way back as a method of identifying where tabs are located.

I use LO on Win XP SP 3 and I can only search for tabs using \t expression but I can't replace any symbols with a tab.


Is there someplace one can find a list of these escape sequences that might be used for search and replace?
