LibO 4.2.4..2 on XP

I need to replace many carriage returns with a single space and considered to use the search & replace function (ctrl+H) Opened: Other Options > Attributes but could not identify an item which searches for carriage returns.

If the search for carriage returns is possible, may please ask for hint which of the shown attributes needs to be selected?

Thanks in advance!

The recommendation by @horst works. Here are the settings

Good solution. It works. But Writer 5.4 still has the same Bug.

Try "$". I think it is not in help list but it was in the list of the extension "Alternate Search & Replace".

@ horst - Thanks it works. I placed the search & replace settings in the "Edit" of my question.

But it is very bad. Find tool ignore special symbol I see in Writer 5.4. The tool can't even find it. This is issue still BIG BUG.

@Alexey - Same bug in 5.4 is a real pitty. I hope it is reported as long term bug and hopefully someone takes the challenge to fix it.

Nevertheless, i love LibO and use it already since 5 years.
