I'm searching for a way to avoid segmentation after a full stop and before an asterisk + after a colon and before an asterisk.

It concerns the following example.

* Material: plastic.
* Dimensions: 3 x 4 x 5 cm.

The whole text from "specifications" till "cm." should be in 1 segment.

I suppose I should use an exception on the full stop rule + on the colon rule, but I can't find the right regular expression.

There's a hard return after each line (after "specifications:", "plastic." and "cm."), so maybe this should be taken into account as well.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Kind regards,
