Regular expressions: $ doesn't match correctly

Recommended Posts

I noticed that, too. That last paragraph ends in something that displays (with Text > Show Special Characters) as a small blue section symbol. But I can't figure out what that symbol is.

Hi both,

Sorry for the delayed reply. I've looked into this and I believe I might have found a different issue. Can you please attach your project file and your Expression? Just to make sure they are not related.

@GabrielM -- I don't have any particular project file, but it's easy to recreate. In a text frame, type xxx, press Enter/Return, and type zzz (but don't press Enter/Return). Now search .$ (any character at the end of a line). This expression should match first the last x, then the last z. But the last z is not found.
