When I copy text from Online, it sometimes appears with no blank line between paragraphs. Rather than manually make another one at each paragraph mark, I would like to find 1 paragraph mark, and replace with 2 paragraph marks in a writer document.

To find 1 paragraph mark, and replace with 2 paragraph marks:

  • EditFind & Replace
  • Search For: $
  • Replace with: \n\n
  • Unfold Other options, check Regular expressions ( and Current selection if you want to)
  • Click Replace All

But, if I understand your need, this is not how I proceed. I prefer to manage the spacing in FormatParagraphIndents & Spacing tab. The best is to define this in the paragraph style.
