2018-02-09 19:36:16 +0100 marked best answer what is logic of find and replace for paragraph marks

I am not very familiar with find and replace in Writer. I would like to replace the sequence tab-paragraph return with just a paragraph return.

Using Alternative Find and Replace, the search criteria are \t$

I tried replacing that with \p but an additional paragraph mark gets added. I don't understand why. I thought I was replacing a tab followed by a paragraph mark with just a paragraph mark. Why is there an extra paragraph mark?

Hope this is clear.

Lib, I had looked at the list of regular expressions but it takes some getting used to. Thanks for the clear explanation

What makes a tag the most useful? I see all sorts of variations of the same words and combinations with _ or -

In short, there is inconsistency and a lot of clutter.

Is that a problem for conducting good searches? If so, what guidelines should be used for creating tags?
