and another try:
In the 'Find' field call the context menu. That is a right click or
Context-menu key on the key board. Choose 'Special Character'. The

Good afternoon from Japan
I have NOT been working on this problem for some time, but would like to
give a little update.
* I DID switch to the English interface on one computer and got the
"reverse solidus" - but it did not work at all.
(all I got were new problems caused by the English interface)
* I DID update another computer to 220.127.116.11. Trying to use regular
expression to find line breaks, tabs etc. does not work. (at least I
cannot make it work)
* If I use the addon "Alternative Find & Replace for Writer v1.4.2, I
can enter \p and the addon finds those line breaks just fine!
- just found that \t actually finds tabs!
* In the regular Find & Replace box I tried to enter a reverse solidus
via 'Special Character' = U+5c. That is in my Japanese Windows machine
and it does NOT work.
* I do not like Word, that is why I am using LibreOffice, but in my old
Word 2007 (kept just in case ...) enter "find = ^p" and "replace = space":
works perfect, no questions asked.
I refuse to believe that having so much troube with LibreOffice is the
way it is supposed to be.
And I am still hoping, there is IS a way to make it work.
