I am looking for a find & replace solution in Writer, where there is a blank space as the last character of a paragraph (eg. last word <space><LF><CR>). In the original OOo and most of the text editors I use the simple solution that worked/works perfectly is: Find = <space>$ Replace = $ (Note: I use <space> here to represent a single space character). This does not work in LO Writer, so I am forced to fiddle around copying from LO and pasting into AOO, running F&R in AOO, then copy/paste back again. Any pointers would be welcome.

I'm surprised that exactly what you say works in OpenOffice. Don't you need to find space-dollar, just as you describe, but to replace with nothing? Replacing with dollar will surely insert an unwanted dollar character?

Or have you forgotten to click "Other options" in the Find and Replace dialogue and to tick "Regular expressions"?

I trust this helps.
