Hi Thomas,

Good afternoon from Japan
Actually, I have asked about this in 2018 and a number of things were suggested.
Unfortunately none did solve the problem.
I have a long file with about 3,500 lines (each line = item) looking like:
HKES    良知良能 [りょうちりょうのう] /(n) xxxxxx/

where I would like to replace the "space[" and "]space" with tabs
so that I can import the file into Calc.

However, working with Japanese Windows 10, Japanese keyboard etc. NOTHING I tried so far allowed me to enter a \t (=> THIS is supposed to be a backslash) as a regular expression, telling
the computer to replace the space[ with a tab.

Is there a trick telling the computer to replace any key sequence with a tab?

Because [ and ] are part of the syntax of a regular expression, you need to use \u005b and \u005d instead. If the \ is not available on your keyboard, you can insert it in a text document in Writer by using the character map. It is at decimal 92. Then bring it to the dialog via copy&paste.

Kind regards
