Hello

If I load up the sample SDI editor application, go to the Find/Replace dialogue, enter the search text '\n\n' and the replacement text '\n', and click 'Use regular expressions' then the replaced text, instead of replacing two line feeds with a single line feed, it replaces two line feeds with the literal text '\n'.

Obviously I have replicated this in code, but I haven't created a sample app specifically to demonstrate - please let me know if you would like me to do that.

I have just upgraded to .285 but this doesn't seem to fix it - and I'm reasonably sure this bug wasn't there in previous versions?

Thanks

Matt

Do you have any idea on when the next maintenance version will be out? Or is there any way to work around the issue in the mean time? My customer is a bit jittery...

Hi Matt,

We're aiming for the next couple weeks. We're trying to tie up a few things first.

Sorry but unfortunately I don't think there is a workaround short of going back to v4.0.0283 or earlier.

Ok, no worries - thanks.

I depend on some post 283 functionality, so I'll wait :)

Thanks!
