- Apr 18, 2013OK:
You guys are going to think I'm utterly daft. I swear, this clip has been working just *fine* for years. Now...now, it's replacing the regexed content WITH this, exactly: <i>$1</i> Not the saved content; the bloody $1 itself. I've tried parentheses, of course; I feel like I've dropped into some alternate reality.
Did 7.01 change something, and I missed it? I don't regex as much as I used to, because I run the company and I'm mostly doing admin. But no kidding, I've used that regex without a hitch (no pun) for ages. The line wrapping help helped (TY!), but now...the replace has gone wonk.
If there's something I need to read, that will tell me why my clip has gone bananas, can someone point me at it? Did I somehow screw up a setting? Any ideas? Thank you.

No WAY. So...does anyone have any ideas as to why it would have worked fine for the last few years--just as shown--and now not work due to the np chars? That's what's getting me nuts...
> Thanks for the regex, too. I really hardly ever pull out RB, as (I hate to admit this), it mostly confuses me. I find the interface difficult. I usually bang around in NTPro until I figure something out, mostly because I'm dense that way. ;-) I'll give yours a go and see how it rolls--Txs again. (Leaving the quoted bits for anyone else who comes along...)
