Need to add page break

Post by talaivan » 2007-10-04 09:56:11

I need to use a global replace to add a page break before a character I've used as a marker (the character is |). I can find the |'s fine, but when I try to replace it with a page break (\f) it just adds "f". Is there any way to put a page break in a replace? Thanks.

Switch to PowerFind Pro and use the following expressions:

Find what: \|
Replace with: \x0C

Council page break, column break and section break be added to the "Special
Characters" in Power Find, Martin?

I wondered about that myself, Mark! I wrote that after a couple of hours of very intensive work (in NWPro masquerading as an outliner) producing an exposition of some nasty stuff my local Council is up to, so anything beginning with Cou ...

Oh dear!

I was green but obviously not morphing fast enough!
