I often import MSWord and material from web pages into ODT documents using LibreOffice-Writer.
Most of the time, each line of a paragraph has a line-feed as opposed to simply letting the paragraph wrap to the next line. In some documents, which may contain a list of one-line entries which should each be a paragraph, they instead, insert a line-feed. In a document more than just a few lines, it is a colossal pain to tediously and meticulously edit each line to either be a paragraph or wrap by removing the line-feeds.
In MSWord, it was possible to enter find-and-replace "codes [e.g. ^l=line feed; ^p=paragraph; ^t=tab] to do this for an entire document in one operation.
Can this be done in LibreOffice-Writer??
I found that it can, but seems to be restricted to “line-feed” converting to “paragraph”. I haven’t found what “wild-cards” to enter for things like “paragraph”(¶), “tab”; “page-break” or any other formatting control characters
Is it in the document??
Yes, at least the “line-feed” [search for “\n” replace with “\n” will change “line-feed” to a "paragraph “¶”];
Is there a newer version of the Writer document??
