In Trados 2019, I want to replace all instances of e.g. ### with a line break. I tried using regex and using \r\n in the replace field, but Trados simply replaces with the literal \r\n. How can I accomplish this without editing the SDLXLIFF files in a text editor?

Just copy a line break into the clipboard and paste it in the "replace with" text box. (You will not see anything change, and the cursor will still blink as if nothing had happened.) You can use regex for the search, or not.

Good luck!
