It has nothing to do with what I asked, which was answered very well. It was the ^p that I didn't find anywhere.

- ... I know this issue is solved long ago, but just for the reference... Open the Find dialog and hit F1 and there it is. Some day you may want to replace aMessage 2 of 2 , Dec 28, 2006View Sourcebruce.somers@... wrote:

The Find and Replace dialog boxes accept tokens to represent special
^T = Tab ($09)
^B = Page break ($0C)
^P = Paragraph (carriage-return/line-feed pair)
The following are not available in NoteTab Pro:
^C = Carriage-return ($0D)
^L = Line-feed ($0A)
