I am able to find newline characters using the escape sequence "\n" in Advanced Find and Replace, but not able to insert newline characters with the same escape sequence.

I need to replace a placeholder with newline characters. Any suggestions?

Hi Bjørnar,

This is currently not possible, but I have it put in as an enhancement.

The only way around it is to search for the place holders and then manually insert the new line character (CTRL+Enter).

Thanks and regards,
