Find and Replace: Special Characters / Commands

Recommended Posts

I am working a lot with tagged text and it would help immensely, if the "Find and Replace" Feature would allow special characters and commands in the ,replace' area (typical example from a badly tagged text: Find "##para##" and replace with "Paragraph Break").

Perhaps I don't understand your need, but for that specific example you can already choose to replace something with a Paragraph Break using the pulldown for the replace text field.

I use tagged text all the time. But any grep f/r I do is in a text editor.

Seeing how no Affinity product supports tagged text anyway, I fail to see the usefulness of importing it as tagged text.

I'm not seeing any pulldown for the replace field. Or am I missing something obvious?
