Hi, I am new to using regex and I am trying to do the following: To replace "these marks" with „these ones“

Using ".+?" finds all occurrences of strings within "these marks" but using this „.+? “ in the replace field causes ".+?" to appear in the text instead of the correct string inside of quotation marks.

Is the replace function not able to use regex? Or am I doing something wrong? Any idea for possible alternatives?

Kind regards
Anna

An example of how to do this... Nov 5, 2012

... with French quotation marks can be found here in the ATA presentation blog:

Shouldn't be difficult to amend for your example.

Regards

Paul

"([a-zA-Z\s]*)" in the find field and

„$1“ in the replace field worked, like described in your link.

Thank you!
