Thank you for directing me to that extension, I'll be using it from
now on for many things. It's great!

However, for the task in hand, that is, replacing end of line
(non-printable) character doesn't work I'm afraid.
In theory what one looks for is the "salto de línea manual        /n",
right?  In English that must be "Manual line feed    /n"  I presume. Or is
it CR/LF? Not sure.
Ok. It simply ignores it.
If I include some spaces at the beginning of the next line, it includes
them in the search and even replaces them with, in this case, a comma. But
the linefeed stays where it is.

I can see the (non-printable) character as a mirrored blue capital p by
going to View > Non-printable characters   Ctrl + F10.  But even trying to
copy that into the search box doesn't produce anything to look for.

I'll keep on searching.

Thank you again for the suggestion, Rémy.

Hi. If you search back on the list (may be in nabble if your subscription has not been long) you may find some information. Looking quickly I found the below. I am not sure this is what you need, but I think the search term is not /n.

To get rid of the blank paragraph, use Edit > Find and Replace, Click Other options, and check 
Regular expressions. In the search field enter ^$
