Thanks for adding to this thread! Unfortunately that doesn't work
because of the same defect I am referring to! It does work in pro of
Also, I am working on a file in excess of 10,000 lines, so I am
concerned about what a regex might do for speed/memory useage even if it
did work. My solution was to replace the ^P with a pipe. The result is
that it doesn't really replace the ^P but does add the pipe. So I wound
up then with |^P. I put my cursor at the end of each line and used
keyboard DELETE to dump out the ^P's. It works ... but should not have
been required. It is essentially like there is a hidden ^P in there.
