Did you notice
0 - that this is a different question?
1 - that there isn't a well defined thing like "end of the line" in word processors?
There are automatic line breaks, hard line breaks, and paragraph breaks.
2 - that you cannot replace automatic or hard linebreaks in the described way but only paragraph breaks?
3 - that you have to enter a comma (probably followed by a space) into 'Replace'?

Suppose you mean switching to new paragraph. You can only replace all the paragraph shifts in a complete selection.
To do so
- select the range
- open 'Find & Replace'
- enter $ (nothing else) into 'Search'
- enter the replacement (in your case a space) into 'Replace'
- Check if options 'Current selection only' and 'Regular expressions' are checked
- hitt 'OK'

If your question was about hard line breaks: You find them with \n and you can combine this with other RegEx elements.
